Finish ^ 
What 
You 
Start 






Take these steps to success by finishing 
classes and earning a certificate or degree. 

1. Define yourself 

Who am I? What do I want to be? Answer these questions by conducting a 
self-assessment, matching jobs with careers and researching your program potential 
through the Broward College Career Center. 

2. Create an education plan 

I know what I want to be - now what do I do? Start creating an educational plan by 
meeting with a Broward College adviser/counselor at one of our campus/center 
locations. Current students can schedule an advising appointment online by logging 
in to myBC on the career center home page. 

3. Get financial aid 

Am I eligible for financial aid? What types of financial aid are available? How do I 
apply? The Broward College Student Financial Aid Web site provides answers to 
these questions and information on award status, veterans, filing dates, withdrawal 
policies, cost of attendance, and more. 

4. Register early 

Research indicates students who develop the habit of registering for their classes early 
are more likely to finish what they start. Register early and get the class schedule 
you desire. Registration is fast and easy in just a few clicks on our Web site. 



^ 5. Maintain your GPA 

1 A healthy GPA opens doors for scholarship opportunities and membership in our 

"* f Honors Institute. Allowing your grade point average to drop could produce some 

t** unwanted consequences. See your academic or financial aid adviser for more information. 

6. Attend and finish all classes 

Your future financial, academic and career success depends on you attending class 
and completing your education. Withdrawing from classes slows your academic 
progress and adds to the time needed for completion of your program. Check your 
education plan with your adviser and stay on track.

environmentally sound innovation, providing 
attainable, high-quality educational programs. 
Broward College will be recognized for its 
recruitment and retention of diverse, outstanding

Mission Statement 

The mission of Broward College is to achieve 
student success by developing informed and creative 
students capable of contributing to a knowledge - 
and service-based global society. As a public 
community college accredited to offer associate 
degrees, selected baccalaureate degrees, and 
certificate programs, the institution and its District 
Board of Trustees are committed to fostering a 
learning-centered community that celebrates 
diversity and inclusion by empowering and engaging 
students, faculty, and staff. 

Core Values 

• Academic Excellence and Student 
Success: Achieving student success 
through high-quality, learning-centered 
programs and services while continuously 
evaluating and improving student learning 
outcomes that reflect the highest academic 
standards. This is accomplished by 
providing flexible educational opportunities 
accessible to all students, regardless of time 
or place. 

• Diversity and Inclusion: Creating a 
community that celebrates diversity and 
cultural awareness while promoting the 
inclusion of all its members. 



• Innovation: Developing and implementing 
the most emergent technologies and 
teaching/learning methods and strategies to 
create learning environments that are 
flexible and responsive to local, national, 
and international needs. 

• Integrity: Fostering an environment of 
respect, dignity, and compassion that 
affirms and empowers all its members while 
striving for the highest ethical standards and 
social responsibility. 

• Sustainability: Ensuring effective, efficient 
use of college resources while implementing 
fiscally sound practices and environmentally 
sustainable initiatives that can be modeled 
in collaboration with our community. 

• Lifelong Learning: Promoting the 
educational growth and development of all 
individuals through a variety of post- 
secondary professional, technical, and 
academic programs and services. 

Philosophy 

As an institution committed to the ideal of the value 
and dignity of the individual, Broward College 
recognizes the religious, ethnic, and cultural diversity 
of its students and staff and endeavors to provide 
equal educational opportunity for all students. 
Furthermore, the college fosters the value of lifelong 
learning as it strives through teaching excellence to 
enable students to appreciate knowledge and to 
acquire an education that will assist them in 
assuming positive roles in a changing society. 
Believing that educated people should be guided in 
their behavior by decency and civility, the college 
values honesty, integrity, and social responsibility 
among its staff and its students. Furthermore, it 
aspires to empower students with the critical 
thinking and problem-solving skills, global 
perspective, clarified values, and creativity that will 
enable them to make moral choices and ethical 
decisions in all aspects of their lives. In addition, the 
college embraces a commitment to American 
democratic values and culture, the principles of 
responsible citizenship, life enrichment, and self- 
awareness.

county, Broward College functions as the principal

Broward College 



provider of undergraduate higher education for the 
residents of Broward County. The college provides 
associate and baccalaureate degrees, and technical 
and occupational training for the citizens of 
Broward County, its district by law. As one of the 
28 public community colleges in the Florida system, 
Broward College is designed to be a community- 
based institution that offers a comprehensive range 
of programs responsive to changes in the 
community and in technology. Where appropriate, 
these programs are articulated with the public school 
system, area vocational schools, and upper-level 
institutions to ensure that students can move 
smoothly from one system to another. 

The college's district board of trustees, its legal 
governing body, serves as a corporate body with all 
powers necessary for governance and operation. The 
college operates under statutory authority and rules 
of the Florida Department of Education. State 
appropriations and student fees provide operational 
funding for college programs. Construction and 
building maintenance funds are provided through 
statewide capital outlay bonds, not through local 
property taxes.

History of the college 

In 1959, the Florida Legislature authorized creation 
of the Junior College of Broward County and 
members of the community began work on making 
the college a reality. An influential group of Broward 
community leaders lobbied Washington D.C. 
officials to provide land at the former Forman Field 
in Davie, a training site for World War II Naval 
aviators. A local advisory board was assembled in 
October 1959 and guided by the State Board of 
Educational Regulations, began developing 
programs and hiring staff. The college's first 
president, Dr. Joe B. Rushing, vice president for 
administration at Howard Payne College in 
Brownwood, Texas, was appointed March 17, 1960. 
He reported for work on April 7.

Broward College 



As construction began at the former Forman Field 
site, the Junior College of Broward County opened 
its doors to its first class of 701 students in fall of 
1960. They attended classes in buildings that were 
formerly part of Naval Air Station Junior High on 
the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International 
Airport property. Dr. John Allen, president of the 
University of South Florida, addressed the college's 
first graduadng class, 73 students, at War Memorial 
Auditorium on June 10, 1962. Among its members 
was Paris Nelson Glendening, who went on to serve 
two terms as Maryland's 59th governor. The Junior 
College of Broward County's first permanent 
building was completed in August 1963 when the 
college officially moved to the Central Campus. 

Broward College received its initial regional 
accreditation by the Southern Association of 
Colleges and Schools SACS Commission Colleges in 
1965 as an institution offering level one associate 
degrees. 

Dr. Rushing resigned in 1965 and was succeeded by 
Dr. Myron Blee, director of the Office for 
Emergency Planning in Washington, D.C. Dr. Blee 
was in turn succeeded by Dr. A. Hugh Adams, who 
assumed his duties as president on April 15, 1968. 

Florida's junior colleges originally were governed by 
boards of public instruction, who also governed 
elementary and secondary instruction in each 
county. In 1968, the same year the JCBC changed its 
name to Broward Junior College, the Florida 
Legislature removed the junior colleges from the 
county school boards' purview and turned the 
colleges' advisoty boards into district boards of 
trustees. 

In September 1970, the district board of trustees 
changed the college's name to Broward Community 
College, a change that better reflected the 
comprehensive nature of the college's programs and 
its role in the community. Also in 1970, the Judson 
A. Samuels South Campus got its start in temporary 
headquarters adjacent to Memorial Hospital in 
Hollywood. North Campus, in Coconut Creek, was 
dedicated in 1972. 

Dr. Adams served as president for 1 9 years. After he 
announced his intention to retire on December 31, 
1986, the district board of trustees renamed the 
Central Campus the A. Hugh Adams Central 
Campus in his honor. 



Named to succeed Dr. Adams was Dr. Willis 
Holcombe, executive vice-president at Brevard 
Community College, and a protege of Dr. James 
Wattenbargcr, architect of the state community 
college system. Before going to Brevard, 
Dr. Holcombe had served at Broward as a 
professor, execudve assistant to President Adams, 
Central Campus academic dean, and then Central 
Campus provost. He served as president for 17 
years, from 1987 to 2004. He initiated efforts that 
led to significant growth in enrollment, facility and 
program expansion. He also was instrumental in 
creating a variety of innovative partnerships to 
benefit the college, its students and the community 
at large. 

Dr. Holcombe retired in January 2004. On his 
retirement, he was named President Emeritus. 
Succeeding him as the college's fifth president was 
Dr. Larry Anthony Calderon, who served as 
president through December 2006. Dr. Holcombe 
returned from retirement to serve as president until 
the Broward College District Board of Trustees 
appointed J. David Armstrong, Jr., the former 
chancellor of the Division of Community Colleges, 
as its sixth president. President Armstrong began 
work at the college in July 2007. Dr. Holcombe was 
appointed chancellor when President Armstrong 
took over at Broward. 

In summer of 2008, the college underwent one 
further name change, to Broward College, after the 
college received State Board of Education and 
legislative approval to begin offering baccalaureate 
degree programs in teacher education. The College 
submitted a substantive change to is regional 
accreditation association SACS and received 
approval to office level two bachelor degree 
programs. The College is also approved to offer 
students Tide IV Student Financial Aid funds for all 
degree levels and eligible certificates. At the same 
time, the college began offering online associate 
degree programs in 13 areas. 

In 2009, the college received approval bv the State 
Board of Education to offer four additional 
baccalaureate degree programs. Thev are: nursing, 
information management, supervision and 
management, and technology management. 

Supporting the viability, vitality and robust growth 
of the communities thev serve is an important part 
of the mission of Florida's publicly supported 
community colleges. With a half century of service

HCP 0691 - Domestic Violence 
HCP0692 - Prevention of Medical Errors 
HCP 0522 - TB / OSHA / \ lepatitis 

These courses, as prescribed by the Florida 
Department of Education, Division of Applied 
Technology and Adult Education, introduce 
students to basic health care knowledge and skills. 
It is also recommended that students enroll in 
College Success Skills, SLS 1501 prior to entering 
any Health Science Program. 

Selection Criteria 

Admission selection is determined from a review 
of the applicant pool. Meeting the minimum 
admission requirements provides prospective 
applicants' eligibility to submit applications for 
admission consideration yet does not guarantee 
acceptance into the program. Candidates, who 
earned the most points by weight, taking into 
consideration all requirements, are selected for 
admission. No exceptions are possible. 

Number of Students Admitted 

Most Health Science programs admit students 
once each year. Few programs admit each 
semester. The number of students selected is 
limited and varies with the availability of clinical 
facilities, state licensing regulations, and other 
related criteria.

2. Post-Professional Development Programs: 

The Continuing Education and Workforce 
Development Department offers post- 
professional development courses/programs for 
credentialed health professionals whose goals 
are to increase their knowledge and skills in 
various health-related topics and courses. 
Advanced Technical Certificates are also offered 
in the following areas: Basic Perioperative 
Nursing, Coronary Care Nursing, Critical Care 
Nursing, Graduate Nurse Intern, Home Health 
Nursing, Multi-skilled Healthcare Professional, 
and Vascular Sonography. 

Technical Performance Standards 

Students must meet certain standards of 
performance prior to the start of any Health Science 
program so that they can successfully progress in 
their course work and ultimately graduate. These 
standards include meeting certain physical, 
psychological, and cognitive demands associated 
with the chosen profession. Technical Performance 
Standards for each program can be reviewed at the 
specific program's web site. 

Health Science Program Policies 

Academic Integrity 

In addition to the College's Student Code of 
Conduct, the Health Science programs have adopted 
a Health Science Code of Professional Behaviors. 
This Code is provided in the Student Handbook for 
each program. Students are expected to comply with 
all of the professional behaviors detailed in the 



Code. Any infraction of the Code may result in 
disciplinary action including dismissal from the 
program. 

Each Health Science course syllabus outlines the 
specific instructor's policy on cheating. If a student 
is discovered cheating, the student also may be 
expelled or suspended from the program. In 
submitting written work during any course, the 
student should be aware of the policy on plagiarism 
adopted by the Health Science faculty found in the 
Student I landbook for each program. 

Attendance 

Each instructor determines the attendance policy for 
his/her Health Science lecture or lab class. The 
attendance policy is detailed in the course syllabus at 
the beginning of each semester. It is the student's 
responsibility to know and comply with the 
attendance policy. Each program maintains clinical 
policies as well which follow specific guidelines 
related to attendance. 

Continuation in a Health Science Program 

Continuation in a Health Science program is 
dependent upon maintaining a minimum grade of 
"C" in each Health Science course and a minimum 
GPA of 2.0 (or as specified by the specific program). 

Each program has established policies in addition to 
the College academic progress policies that may be 
more restrictive and that must be met in order to 
progress through the program. As such, the 
program deans can assess students readiness and 
qualifications including, but not limited to the 
following: coursework, clinical and laboratory; 
behavior and ethical standards in and outside of 
class at the College or at clinical sites and make a 
judgment to continue or discontinue a student's 
enrollment. When it is deemed that the student 
does not possess the qualifications necessary for the 
selected Health Science career or demonstrates 
behavior deemed to be potentially detrimental to the 
aims and purposes of the College or to a patient's 
safety and well being, the student will be dismissed 
from health science programs. This decision may or 
may not impact continued enrollment in other 
programs at the College, each circumstance will be 
evaluated. Excessive course/clinical failures in 
limited access programs may result m dismissal from 
the program. Refer to College Policy 61 1x2-5.33 and 
Procedure ,\6Hx2-5.-33 on Re-entry into a Health 
Sciences Program or program guidelines.

Criminal Background Check and Drug 
Screening 

Students applying to a Health Science program are 
subject to a criminal background check and drug 
screening which is required as a prerequisite to 
attending any clinical practicum while enrolled in the 
program. A student needs to be aware that 
participation and placement may be denied at a 
clinical agency based on the background or drug 
screening results and the clinical agency's pre- 
employment screening policy. 

Should such denial occur, the health science 
program cannot guarantee an alternative facility 
placement. Withdrawal from the program will be 
necessary if a student cannot meet requirements as 
they relate to the clinical site. 

If a student is admitted to the College based on their 
background check and screening and is allowed to 
complete a clinical experience, it does not guarantee 
the student will be eligible to sit for the certification 
or licensing exam. Pursuant to Section 456.0635, 
Florida Statutes, effective July 1, 2009, health care 
boards or the department shall refuse to issue a 
license, certificate or registration and shall refuse to 
admit a candidate to sit for the examination if the 
applicant has been: 

1. Convicted or plead guilty or nolo contendre 

to a felony violation regardless of 
adjudication of: chapters 409, 817, or 893, 
Florida Statutes; or 21 U.S.C. ss. 801-970 or 
42 U.S.C. ss 1395-1396, unless the sentence 
and any probation or pleas ended more than 
1 5 years prior to the application. 

2. Terminated for cause from Florida Medicaid 

Program (unless the applicant has been in 
good standing for the most recent five 
years). 

3. Terminated for cause by any other State 

Medicaid Program or the Medicare Program 
(unless the termination was at least 20 years 
prior to the date of the application and the 
applicant has been in good standing with 
the program for the most recent five years). 

Nursing graduates taking the NCLEX-RN 
must be able to provide one or more of the 
acceptable forms of identification as described 
on the Testing Center's website 

(www.pearsonvue.com/nclex). For further 

information, see the Nursing Program in the 
Catalog. 



College Disclaimer 

Health Science graduates are subject to the laws, 
policies, and procedures of their respective 
regulatory or licensing boards. And these 
regulations are outside the control of the College. 
Students should read all guidelines and ensure that 
they can comply prior to seeking admission or 
persisting to completion of any program that 
requires licensure or certification from an entity not 
governed by the College. 

Curriculum and Policy Changes 

The Health Science policies and programs of study 
contained in this catalog and program student 
handbooks are not to be regarded as a contract 
between the student and the College. The College 
reserves the right to make curriculum changes as 
approved by the College's curriculum approval 
process and/or policy changes, all of which must be 
approved by the College's District Board of 
Trustees. The effective date of such changes is 
usually made at the beginning of each academic year; 
however, there may be occasions, when changes 
may be required within an academic year. 

Graduation Requirements 

Students must complete all courses in the degree or 
certificate program with a grade of "C" or higher 
and have an overall degree GPA of 2.0 or higher. 
It is important that students know the catalog 
requirements under which they will graduate. Health 
Science students have three options: 

1. If attendance has been continuous (Term I and II 
each year), the student may graduate under the 
catalog in effect at the time or entry into the 
College or the one in effect at the time of 
graduation.. 

2. If attendance has been interrupted by one or 
more terms (not including Term III — Summer), 
the student must meet college requirements for 
either the catalog in effect at the time of re- 
enrollment or the catalog in effect at the time of 
graduation. 

3. Health Science students may meet graduation 
requirements in effect for the catalog year in 
which they entered the program. I suggest 
deleting #1-3 and referring the students to the 
catalog statement on p. 84, "Applicable Catalog". 

Students should consult with an Academic Advisor 
or Counselor every term to assure successful 
progress toward completion of the chosen Health 
Science certificate or degree.

Health and Accident Insurance 

Any student who is assigned to a clinical facility may 
be exposed to environmental hazards and infectious 
diseases. It is strongly recommended that each 
student carry health insurance to avoid any 
untoward expenses related to medical care. Health 
insurance is not offered by the College. 

Limited accident insurance is provided for Health 
Science students at the time of registration in clinical 
courses each semester for a nominal fee. This 
insurance provides coverage for injuries sustained 
while participating in Health Science classes, labs 
and/or clinical training. 

Health Examination 

A Medical History and Physical Health Form must 
be completed at the time specified by the program. 
Final acceptance or continuation in a program will 
be contingent upon the results of the physical 
examination. A student may not enroll in a clinical 
course unless the Health Form has been submitted 
then reviewed by the program for completion of all 
listed requirements. Forms for each Health Science 
program are available online. 

Liability Insurance 

Professional liability insurance is required of all 
Health Science students each term that they are 
enrolled in a clinical course. The fee for liability 
insurance coverage is non-refundable and is charged 
each semester when the student registers for the first 
clinical course during an academic year. 

Registration/ Audit 

A student must be admitted to a program and be 
registered in the course to attend any Health Science 
class. No student may audit a Health Science course 
without the permission of the appropriate Health 
Science Associate Dean or Program Manager. 

Substance Abuse Policy Statement 

All Health Science programs are committed to 
maintaining an environment that is free from 
substance abuse. Any student who is convicted 
under a criminal statute for a drug-related offense is 
required to notify his or her Dean or appropriate 
representative not later than five (5) days after such 
conviction. Failure to comply with this policy by 
any student will constitute disciplinary actions. 



A student who is unable to perform clinical activities 
with reasonable skill and safety to patients by reason 
of illness, or use of alcohol, drugs, narcotics,

Accelerated Learning Opportunities 



High School Accelerated Opportunities 

Eligible high school and home education students 
may apply for admission to BC and enroll in 
college-level courses to increase learning and 
shorten the length of time needed to acquire a 
college degree. Special application and approval 
procedures apply to students in all BC accelerated 
programs. Written authorization from the 
principal, guidance director, and parent or 
guardian is required for Dual Enrollment and 
Early Admission . The eligible student's 

application and matriculation fees will be waived 
for Broward County Public School students, home 
education students, and many private high school 
students. Credits are also awarded for certain 
scores on national examinations. 

If a student desires to continue at BC, a re-entry 
application, changing the admission status, must 
be completed. 

Home education dual enrollment students 
may participate in the dual enrollment program at 
BC for two consecutive years of academic 
instruction or until the end of the term in which 
the student reaches the age of 19. After the two 
consecutive years are completed or the student 
turns 19 (whichever occurs first), the home 
education student may not be admitted to BC as a 
dual enrollment student unless otherwise provided 
by law. 

College Course-level Outcomes and 
Expectations 

o Any letter grade below a "C" will not count as 
credit toward satisfaction of the requirements 
in Rule 6A-10.030, F.A.C. All grades are 
calculated in a student's GPA and will appear 
on the student's permanent college transcript, 
including "W" for withdrawal. Grades of 
"D", "F", and/or "W" may affect subsequent 
postsecondary admission. Careful course 
selection is highly recommended. 

• While appropriate for college-level study, 
course materials and class discussions may 
reflect topics not typically included in 
secondary courses; parents may object for 
minors. Courses will not be modified to 
accommodate variations in student age 
and/ or maturity. 



• To minimize student costs for excess hours, 
parents/students should select courses to 
meet high school graduation and college 
degree requirements, including approved 
program common prerequisites. General 
education courses are strongly encouraged. 

Attendance Requirements 

Eligible public and non-public high school 
students who have been certified by their 
principals as qualified to dually enroll in courses 
may attend Broward College. It is the students' 
responsibility to attend all classes in which they 
are enrolled. High school students are responsible 
for completing the proper college process and 
notifying their high school if they choose to 
withdraw from a course. Each faculty member is 
required to report non-attendance throughout the 
term up to the 60% period. When students do not 
attend class up to the 60% period, the student 
can be unofficially withdrawn from the course by 
faculty based on the class attendance policy, or the 
student's non-attendance. The high school is 
responsible for advising the student each 
semester; at which time the student's eligibility for 
enrollment in specific approved courses at 
Broward College must be verified by the high 
school principal 

To Apply 

Students who wish to enroll in an accelerated 
learning program must submit the following 
documents to a campus Admissions Office prior 
to registration. 

• A completed application. 

• A confidential recommendation form signed 
by the principal or designee. 

• Test scores for ACT, SAT, or the 
Postsecondary Education Readiness Test 
(PERT). The PERT is administered in the 
Testing Centers at each BC campus. 

• An official copy of the transcript of credits 
earned to date, provided by the high school, 
for purposes of advising, counseling and GPA 
verification. 

Dual Enrollment 

This program offers high school juniors and 
seniors a unique opportunity to enroll in BC 
courses for high school and college credit. High 
school students who have completed 11 credits 
prior to the fall term and 13.5 credits prior to the 



50 



/.broward.edu 



2011-2012 CoUege Catalog 



Broward College 



winter term may concurrently enrolled in post- 
secondary courses creditable toward a vocational 
cerdficate, diploma, or an associate, or 
baccalaureate degree provided they meet program 
rules and regulations. Students participadng in 
dual enrollment options must meet the following 
entrance eligibility requirements: (1) enrolled in a 
course of study which will fulfill requirements for 
high school graduation; (2) 3.0 cumulative 
unweighted GPA and; (3) minimum standardized 
college placement scores. Students may not earn 
more than 12 credits of dual enrollment unless 
they have passed all three sections of the CPT 
(PERT will replace the CPT in the Fall 2010) or 
have appropriate SAT/ACT scores. Students 
without appropriate entrance exam scores and 
appropriate GPA may enroll in SLS 1001 only. In 
order to continue in the program, students must 
maintain a 3.0 unweighed GPA in their high 
school academic work and earn a 2.0 GPA or 
better in college-level work as confirmed by their 
high school guidance director and BC's registrar's 
office. Student may enroll in a maximum of 1 1 
dual enrollment credits per semester. 

Early Admission 

High school seniors may enroll full-time in college 
and receive high school and college credit for 
courses. Students must enroll in two consecutive 
terms carrying a minimum of twelve college -level 
credit hours each major term not to exceed thirty 
credit hours for two consecutive terms, and 
maintain a grade point average of 2.0, in order to 
receive a high school diploma. To be eligible for 
the Early Admissions program students must meet 
the same requirements as for Dual Enrollment. 

Advanced Placement 

BC cooperates fully with accredited high schools 
and colleges in the Advanced Placement Program 
of the College Board. Advanced Placement 
courses are challenging, college-level courses that 
are designed to parallel typical freshman and 
sophomore-level courses. Advanced placement 
exams are taken after students complete the 
corresponding Advanced Placement courses, 
which are available to juniors and seniors in most 
Broward County high schools. To qualify for 
college credit, students must earn an appropriate 
passing score on the nationally administered exam. 
Credits will not be awarded for examinations that 
duplicate course work or other exam credits 
previously posted to a student's academic record. 
In order to award credit, Broward College requires 



an official grade report, sent directly to the College 
from College Board, not a student copy. 

Students are awarded credits only. Grades are not 
given for advanced placement courses. Theret ore- 
advanced placement courses are not included in 
the grade point average. More information about 
Advanced Placement, including dcscriptions / of 
courses and sample examination questions, is 
available online at www.collcgcboard.com/ap . 

Recording Fee 

Broward College charges a $5.00 recording fee for 
Advanced Placement courses to be entered on a 
student's transcript. This must be paid to the 
campus cashier before the course will be listed on 
the student's transcript.

College Level Examination Program (CLEP) 

The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) 
is a series of tests developed by the Educational 
Testing Service and offered at test centers 
throughout the country. The CLEP program 
provides an opportunitv for students to 
demonstrate competency in certain subjects and 
thereby earn college credit for particular courses 
without attending classes. Students seeking CLEP 
credit at Broward College but do not wish to 
become BC students must submit a non-credit 
admissions application to the 

Admissions/Registration Office. Individuals 

wishing to become BC students and receive CLEP 
credit must apply to Broward College and pay the 
non-refundable application fee . Former BC dual 
enrollment students must submit a Re-Fntrv 
application but do not pay the application fee. 
BC's CLEP code number is 5(>~4. 

CLEP tests are administered throughout the \ car 
at any of the three campus testing centers at 
specific testing dates and times . 



Broward College 



2011-2012 College ( atalog 



wNvw. br ow ard.gdv

CLEP credit cannot duplicate regular college 
course credit already earned, Dual Enrollment 
credit, or other credits earned through 
examination. Letter grades are not awarded for 
CLEP courses, and CLEP courses are not 
included in the GPA for term enrollment credit 
hours. 

The CLEP tests are offered in addition to the BC 
Experiential Learning which provides for the 
assessment of prior learning and awarding of 
credit for many other BC courses. Courses for 
which credit is awarded is not included in BC 
enrolled credit hours and are not eligible to meet 
in residence requirements for graduation. Contact 
the Associate Vice President for Student 
Affairs /College Registrar's Office for additional 
CLEP information. 

Other Nationally Standardized Tests 
Broward College awards credit based on receipt of 
specific passing grades on Dantes Subject 
Standardized Tests (DSST) and Excelsior College 
examinations. Credit awarded may not duplicate 
ordinary credit, Dual Enrollment credit, or other 
credits earned through examination at the 
institution. Students seeking credit for Dantes or 
Excelsior College exams must be admitted to the 
College. 

International Baccalaureate Program 

The International Baccalaureate Program is a 
challenging curriculum offered in high schools 
that is designed to prepare students for advanced 
coursework in many countries' postsecondary 
systems. Students with IB diplomas have been 
assessed in several subjects and have fulfilled 
certain other requirements, such as an extended 
essay. An official IB transcript is required and 
must be received directly from the International 
Baccalaureate Office in New York. Students are 
awarded credits only. They are not given grades 
for IB courses; therefore IB courses are not 
included in the grade point average. 

Career Pathways Program 

Career Pathways (formerly Tech Prep) links 
secondary and postsecondary technical education 
programs of study. High school or technical 
center students who complete a technical program 
of study will receive training for high skill, high 
wage occupations. At the same time, they can 
begin earning Broward College or technical center 
credits. Students are encouraged to take rigorous 
academic courses along with the Career Pathways 



program and maintain a "C" or higher grade point 
average. 

Students must complete a technical program at the 
high school or technical center, and meet the 
articulation agreement requirements, which 
include a comprehensive assessment to validate 
required technical competencies. The number of 
credits that will be awarded and the type of 
assessment that will be used are outlined in the 
technical education articulation agreements 
established between Broward College and 
Broward County Public Schools. Credit will be 
awarded once the student has been accepted to 
Broward College and enrolled in a program of 
study. The credits will be valid for 18 months 
after high school/technical center graduation. 

Career Pathways Program Areas include but 
are not limited to the following: 

Accounting Technology 
Automotive Technology 
Business Administration Programs 
Early Childhood and Education Program 
Computer Science Technology 
Diversified Cooperative Training 
Engineering Technology Program 
Health Sciences 
Hospitality/Travel & Tourism 
Industrial Management Technology 
Marketing 

Office Systems Technology Programs 
Restaurant Management

please contact Broward College Career Pathways 
Office . 

The College Academy 

The College Academy, located on the central 
campus, is a joint venture between the School 
Board of Broward County and Broward College. 
It is an accelerated college program for Broward 
County eleventh and twelfth grade students. This 
dual-enrollment secondary school was created for 
students who desire an alternative to the 
traditional high school program. Students are 
provided the opportunity to receive a high school 
diploma and an Associate of Arts degree 
concurrendy. Specific pre-admission requirements 
must be met to establish eligibility. Tuition and 
books are provided free of cost for College 
Academy students. While attending The College 
Academy, students are enrolled in both dual 
enrollment and high school courses, taking 



52 



www.hroward.edu 



2011-2012 College Catalog 



Broward College 



approximately 12 college credits per semester. 
Students must attend the fall, winter, and first 
summer terms. Those planning to earn their AA 
degree while still in high school may need to 
complete additional dual enrollment coursework 
during the second summer term. Students must 
maintain a 2.5 unweighted high school grade point 
average in order to remain at The College 
Academy. 

The College Academy is designed for students 
who have the maturity required for college 
campus life, the discipline to use their time wisely, 
and the academic ability to handle the rigor of 
college work. 

Since Broward College, and therefore College 
Academy, is a public space and open access 
campus (open to the general public), the Jessica 
Lunsford* rules that exist for traditional public 
schools cannot apply for College Academy. 

* Jessica Lunsford Act obliges all personnel who are in 
contact with students to undergo a state and national 
fingerprint-based criminal history check. 

For further information, contact The College 
Academy at www.collegeacademyatbcc.org or 
(754) 321 6900. 

Experiential Learning 

Experiential Learning, developed primarily for 
working adults, is designed to recognize the 
academic value of what students have learned 
through experiences outside the college 
classroom. Credit for experiential learning may 
result from work experience, employment-related 
training programs and seminars, volunteer work, 
travel, military service or intensive self-directed 
study. If students have gained BC course- 
equivalent knowledge, competencies, and/or skills 
as a result of prior learning experiences, they may 
be able to earn academic credit through the 
Experiential Learning for lower division and 
upper division coursework. 

Assessment Process 

The assessment process is sometimes referred to 
as "challenging a course." Assessment may 
involve one or more of the following: 

• written or performance tests 

• preparation of a portfolio that describes 
student learning and how it was acquired 



• evaluation of student certificates and 
licenses 

• interviews with faculty members 

The method of assessment is determined by 
College faculty members that are responsible for 
the courses for which students wish to receive 
credit. 

Experiential learning credits are not available for 
all BC courses. Students who have been admitted 
and who have decided on an academic program 
may challenge courses through Experiential 
Learning. Students can obtain information from 
the academic department(s) responsible for the 
course(s) that the student wishes to challenge. 
Students who receive permission to challenge a 
course from an authorized faculty assessor must 
pay the required assessment fees and satisfactorily 
pass a faculty-administered learning assessment 
before credit can be awarded. 

The assessment process may take from several 
hours to several months, depending upon the 
amount of credit requested and methods of 
assessment required. When the process is 
completed, assessment results will be forwarded to 
the College's District Academic Affairs Office, 
which verifies that assessment documentation is 
complete and informs the Associate Vice 
President for Student Affairs /College Registrar's 
Office of the amount of credit the student has 
earned. 

Although there is no limit to the number of hours 
that students can receive through Experiential 
Learning, 25% of credits required for a degree 
must be earned by taking classes at BC to satisfy 
in residence requirements for graduation. 

Assessments are generally not scheduled between 
semesters or during the first or the last week of 
each semester. Results of assessments initiated 
during the last week of any semester mav not be 
posted to student transcripts for that semester. 
Students who wish to use Experiential Learning 
credits to satisfy same-semester graduation 
requirements, course load requirements, transfer 
requirements, or registration pre-requisites should 
plan to complete their assessments well before the 
end of the semester in which thev want the credits 
to be posted. 

Experiential Learning credits appear on student 
transcripts as "CR." Letter grades are not

awarded for Experiential Learning. Credits earned 
through Experiential Learning satisfies graduation 
requirements but may not be accepted as transfer 
credits at another institution. Students planning 
to transfer to other institutions should contact the 
college or university to determine if Experiential 
Learning credits are accepted. 

For more information, contact the the appropriate 
academic department(s) or the Associate Vice 
President for Academic at 954-201-7279. 



Armed Services Educational Credits 

Broward College will grant credit for evaluated 
military education that has been recommended as 
suitable for postsecondary credit by the American 
Council on Education's Guide to the Evaluation 
of Educational Experiences in the Armed 
Services. The credits will be awarded in the same 
manner as Experiential Learning credits. After 
enrollment in the College, a student with military 
education may follow the process for Experiential 
Learning by initiating a request to the appropriate 
academic department(s).

Online Learning Opportunities 



One of Broward College's goals is to provide 
access to classes when a student wants and needs 
them. Online and blended courses are some of the 
many ways BC makes education accessible and 
promotes a successful learning environment. 

BC's online and blended courses and degree 
programs are designed for motivated, self- 
disciplined students whose schedules do not 
permit them to attend regularly scheduled 
meetings on campus, for students who prefer to 
study independently, or for students who prefer a 
blend of online and on-campus learning. 

Cutting edge online courses have the same start 
and end dates as on-campus classes, but students 
can log in anytime, anywhere to read content, take 
part in class discussions, upload assignments, 
email the professor, and take quizzes. Online 
courses have few, if any, on-campus requirements. 
Blended courses combine on-campus with online 
learning, reducing, but not replacing on-campus 
attendance requirements. 

Fully Online Degrees 

Several A.A. and A.S. degree programs can be 
taken entirely online. A number of certificate 
programs are also available in a fully online 
format. For a complete list of available degrees 
and certificates, see the Broward College Online 
website. 

Online Courses 

Online courses are a great way for students to 
complete degree requirements while juggling work 
and/or family responsibilities. However, online 
learning requires self-discipline and well- 
developed study skills. A self assessment, 
available on the Broward College Online website, 
will help you determine if online learning might be 
right for you. Some online courses may require 
limited on-campus meetings for orientations, labs, 
and proctored tests. On-campus meeting 
requirements (if any) are listed in the course 
schedule, Course Preview Page and in the course 
syllabus. 

All online courses are college credit equivalents to 
courses taken in a classroom. Online courses can 
be used to meet A.A. degree requirements, as well 
as requirements in a number of A.S. and technical 
certificate programs. The cost of tuition is the 
same as for on-campus courses; however, students 
enrolled in online courses are assessed a distance 
learning fee. Enrolled students may register for 



online courses on the college's website or may 
register on campus. 

Blended Courses and Programs 

Blended courses combine traditional on campus 
learning with online learning. Blended learning 
classes replace some of the time that would 
normally be spent in a classroom with online 
learning activities. Blended courses are a good 
choice for students who enjoy both online and 
on-campus learning but cannot spend as much 
time on campus as would be required for a 
traditional course. Some blended courses are 
offered in an accelerated format that permits 
students to complete courses in a shortened time 
frame. 

Blended programs either consist of some online 
courses and some on campus courses, or offer all 
the courses in the program in a blended format. 
For a complete list of available degrees and 
certificates, see the Broward College Online 
website. 



Getting Ready for Class 

You can log in to your online or blended class on 
the first day of the term, but before classes start, 
you should read the Course Preview Page for the 
course(s) for which you registered. Preview Pages 
include important documentation that you need to 
know before the class actually begins such 
as information about required textbooks and 
supplies, mandatory on-campus meetings or 
exams (if there are any), and information about 
the class orientation.

Placement Testing 



Course Placement, Educational Planning, and Registration 

Transfer students' placement will be based on 
the official evaluation of credit earned at previous 
colleges. Placement testing may be required. 



As part of the admission process, all degree- 
seeking students ( A.A.. A.S.. A.A.S.) . including 
transfer students whose achievement level has not 
been certified, shall be assessed in writing, reading 
and mathematics to establish their communication 
and computation achievement levels . 

Placement Test Options 

First-time-in-college students, admitted after 
October 1, 1991, must present test scores, not 
more than two years old, on one of the following 
State-approved placement tests. 

1 . ACT (American College Testing Program) 

2. Enhanced ACT (American College Testing 
Program) 

3. SAT (The College Board) 

4. SAT1 (The College Board; administrations 
between 3/1/94 and 3/31/95) 

5. RSAT (Recentered SAT) 

6. CPT (Computerized Placement Tests, The 
College Board) 

7. Postsecondary Education Readiness Test 
(PERT) as of March 2011. 

Students' scores on ACT or SAT may exempt 
them from placement testing. Students who have 
not taken any of the above tests, or whose test 
scores on any of the above test are older than two 
years, must take the Postsecondary Education 
Readiness Test (PERT). 

Placement in Courses 

Student whose test scores meets or exceeds the 
stated cutoff scores writing, reading and math, 
may enroll in college-level English and Math 
courses. 

When a student's score falls below the cutoff in 
one or more of those areas, the student must 
enroll in and successfully complete the 
appropriate college preparatory course prior to 
enrolling in college level English or Mathematics 
courses until their competency in these academic 
areas has been certified. Students enrolled in 
college preparatory courses may enroll in certain 
other college level courses concurrently. 



Degree-holding students will not be required to 
undergo placement testing upon submission of an 
official transcript from a regionally-accredited 
college. However, ESL students may be tested for 
placement. 

Students whose primary language is not 
English, and who have less than two years of 
non- ESOL English classes in the United States, 
must take the Levels of English Proficiency 
(LOEP) to assess English proficiency. The LOEP 
test scores and a writing sample will be used for 
English Placement. 

Non-degree seeking students shall be required 
to take the placement test prior to enrollment in 
English or Mathematics courses or other courses 
that require English, Reading or Mathematics as 
pre-requisites. 

Certificate /Diploma Programs 

Students enrolling in selected Vocational 
Certificate and Applied Technology Diploma 
programs are required to submit scores, less than 
two years old, from the Test of Adult Basic 
Education (TABE). Students who do not meet 
the required TABE scores, as defined by Florida 
State Board Rule, can begin coursework in a 
certificate/diploma program, but must complete 
remediation of skills prior to graduation from the 
program. Remediation is available in all campus 
Learning Resource Centers. Once study is 
completed, students must retake the TABE and 
present passing scores in all areas to graduate with 
their certificate/diploma. TABE Testing is 
available on each campus. Contact a campus 
Testing Center for TABE testing information or 
visit the College website. 

Students who have previously completed college 
preparatory instruction, passed college-level 
English and Mathematics courses, or hold a 
degree, should see an Academic 

Advisor/Counselor for possible TABE 
exemption.

College preparatory course requirements are 
determined on the basis of a student's placement 
test scores. All students entering BC must take 
the Florida Postsecondary Education Readiness 
Test (PERT), or submit a State of Florida college- 
read}' diploma or acceptable Advanced Placement 
score, SAT or ACT scores that exempt them from 
the college preparatory program or they must 
submit college transcripts that show the 



Broward College 



201 1-2012 College Catalog 



completion of Freshman English and/or 
Intermediate Algebra. Students who test into 
college preparatory courses must successfully 
complete all of the required coursework to qualify 
for graduation. Students should contact any 
Academic Advisement Office to arrange for 
placement testing or to discuss their existing 
placement test scores. 

A student having an initial PERT, CPT, ACT or 
SAT score that indicates college preparatory 
placement and who has begun his/her preparatory 
course work at BC may retest with the PERT tor 
placement every 90 days. A fee will be charged 
for each re-test with the PERT. 

College Preparatory Credit 

College preparatory courses earn,' credit, but the 
credits cannot be used to satisfy degree 
requirements. Students can use veteran's benefits 
and Federal financial aid to assist in paying for 
these courses up to a maximum of 30 credit hour. 
These credits do not count in determining 
academic progress for students to remain eligible 
for financial aid. . However, these credits count in 
the students' term and cumulative GPA averages 
and in the attempted and earned credit hours on 
the students' transcript. 

Some other forms of financial aid, including 
Bright Futures Scholarships , do not cover tuition 
for college preparatory courses. Students should 
check with the Student Financial Services Office 
for additional information. 

Enrolling in College Preparatory Courses 

Students who are required to take college 
preparatory courses, as a result of their placement 
test scores on the SAT, ACT, CPT, or PERT 
must register for such courses each term until all 
required courses are successfully completed. In 
addition, the following restrictions for course 
sequencing will applv and increase a student's 
chances for academic success: 

• Students who test into two or more 
college preparatory disciplines (ENC, 
MAT, and REA) are limited to 12 credits 
in a full term and seven credits in a 
summer term. 

• Students are required to register for the 
college preparatory reading course during 
their first term. 



www.broward.edu 



59 



• Students who test into REA0007C are 
required to register for the course during 
their first term. 

• Students who test into REA0017C are 
required to register for the course during 
their first term. 

• Students are required to take the highest 
level of preparatory reading (REA0017C) 
the term immediately after successful 
completion of the lowest level of college 
preparatory reading (REA0007C). 

• Students testing into three college 
preparatory disciplines (ENC, MAT, or 
REA) are required to satisfactorily 
complete the college preparatory reading 
sequence (REA0007C and/or 
REA0017C) before registering for a 
college preparatory math course 
(MAT0018 or MAT0028). 

• Students testing into at least two college 
preparatory disciplines (ENC, MAT, and 
REA) are required to take SLS1501, 
College Success Skills, during their first 9 
credits. (This one credit course serves as 
an introduction to BC and teaches 
students strategies and skills to help them 
succeed in college.). Students may 
substitute SLS1001, Strategies for 
Success, for SLS1501. 

• Students testing into three college 
preparatory courses are required to take 
SLS1001, Strategies for Success, during 
their first 6 credits. (This three credit 
course provides students with 
opportunities to learn about Broward 
College and higher education, acquire and 
practice learning strategies, explore 
personal learning styles, identify career 
options, and develop life-long 
citizenship.) 

These requirements apply to college preparatory 
students who are seeking degrees and have not 
previously attended college. Students must meet 
with an Academic Advisor in any Academic 
Advisement Office regarding proper course 
selections, sequencing, and requirements. 

Alternative Providers for Preparatory 
Instruction 

Students can seek methods other than the 
College's preparatory courses for improvement of 
skills. 



Students have the option of pursuing college 
preparatory instruction through programs offered 
by private providers of instruction. Students 
interested in this option should obtain additional 
information from any campus Student Affairs 
office. Students exercising this option must retake 
and pass the appropriate sections of the PERT, 
the Postsecondary Education Readiness Test, 
prior to enrolling in college-level courses. 

Note: Private providers are not affiliated with BC 
and the College neither endorses nor warrants 
their services. BC assumes no responsibility 
related to the operations of these providers, and 
specifically disclaims any and all liabilities resulting 
from, or arising out of, or in connection with, 
students' use of their products and services. 

Maximum Attempts Per Course 

Based on state regulations, students may enroll no 
more than three times in any particular college 
credit or preparatory course. Students may not 
"audit" college preparatory courses. Students will 
be assessed the full cost of instruction for the 
third attempt. Exemptions may be granted based 
on documented financial hardships or extenuating 
circumstances. Details about petitioning for an 
exemption are available in any campus Dean of 
Student's Office. 

English as a Second Language (ESL) 

The purpose of the ESL Program is to prepare 
non-native English speaking students to function 
successfully in BC courses. 

Entering the ESL Program 

Students who are non-native English speakers 
should contact any Academic Advisement Office 
for an appointment. An ESL placement test and 
writing sample will be administered to all students, 
regardless of their TOEFL score. Students will be 
placed in ESL Program courses based on the 
results of the ESL placement test and writing 
sample. 

Course Load for Visa Students 

Visa students must take a full course load 
minimum of 12 credits or more in order to 
maintain a student visa. During their first and 
second semesters at BC, Visa students should 
concentrate on the ESL Program and take a 
limited number of other courses.

Educational Planning 

A key factor in student success is having a sound 
educational plan to guide decisions about what 
courses to take and when. With an educational 
plan, students also have an idea of when degree 
requirements for graduation will be complete. 
Academic Advisors and Counselors are available 
to assist students with the development of an 
educational plan based upon personal and career 
goals, test scores, previous high school and college 
course work, and current lifestyles. A 

recommended course of study is developed for 
each student to use as a guide for course selection 
while attending BC. 

All students are required to have an educational 
plan prior to the end of their second enrolled 
semester. 

Advisement 

All first-time-in-college students enrolling at BC 
are required to complete an Advisement and 
Registration session prior to registering for 
courses. The session provides students with 
important College information that will aid in 
meeting their educational goals. Add the new- 
advisement statement from State relative to excess 
hours. 



Registration 

Continuing students may register online or in 
person at the campus Registration Offices using 
their assigned student ID and PIN. 

Student ID Number 

A student ID is a system derived identifier that is 
used throughout the BC student information ^nd 
web-based systems. 

PIN Number 

The personal identification number (PIN) is the 
student's access into their "myBC" student portal 
at Broward College. The initial PIN is set as the 
birth month and year (MMYYYY). It is 
important that the PIN number is not revealed to 
anyone. If it is suspected that the PIN is not 
secure, change the PIN online to ensure academic 
records security. If a PIN number is lost or 
forgotten, or if the default PIN does not appear to 
work, present a picture ID to acquire the correct 
code at any of the campus Enrollment Sendees 
Offices . 

Online Registration 

Register on the web by following eight easy steps. 
From the Broward College home page : 



Enter the student ID and PIN number at 
"myBC" (Your student ID number is the

Registration Dates 

Registration dates are published online for all 
students and are also available via myBC for 
current students. 

Schedule Changes 

During registration periods, students may add 
courses until the actual class begins if the course is 
not full. 

After the term begin, students may "drop" courses 
until the last day of the "drop" with a 100% 
refund date published on the College calendar 
online and in the catalog. 

Anytime thereafter, students may "withdraw" 
from courses until the last day of the published 
"withdrawal" period at the 60% point in the term. 
After 100% date, students are considered to be 
enrolled and responsible for the students. 

Student financial aid is based on course 
enrollment; therefore, any changes in enrollment 
through the 60% published date on the College 
calendar will impact a student's financial aid 
award. 

Registration Holds 

A registration hold may be placed on a student's 
record that will prevent the student from 
registering until action has been taken to resolve 
the issue. If students are unable to register online , 
it is their responsibility to contact the College 
Office or other relevant office promptly to 
determine the cause of the problem and resolve it 
in a timely manner. Students may see what 
registration holds, if any, they may have by logging 
into their "myBC" account. Typical holds include 
missing transcripts, unpaid student fines, 
discipline or other violations, incomplete records, 
academic warning, probation, and suspension or a 
requirement to meet with a college official prior to 
registration. 

Auditing a Class 

Auditing a class allows students to enroll in a class 
for no credit. No grade is awarded for audited 
courses. The transcript will indicate a grade of 



"X." Students must contact the instructor to learn 
of any requirements regarding attendance, class 
participation and assignments. A student may 
only change to or from an audit status during the 
designated drop/add period for each term. 
Changing from credit to audit may be done with 
the instructor's approval through the scheduled 
last day to change from credit to audit as listed in 
the academic term calendar. Audits count as an 
attempt if enrolled after the drop/add period. 

Course Withdrawals 

All courses removed from a student's schedule 
before the 100% refund date are considered 
"dropped" courses and will not be indicated on 
the students' official transcript. Schedule changes 
after the 100% refund date are considered 
withdrawals and a (W) will appear for withdrawn 
courses. Students can initiate course drops or 
withdrawals online. If a student wants to 
withdraw from a course or from the College they 
can also see an Enrollment Services Officer on 
any campus. All withdrawals that students initiate 
are considered "official" withdrawals. The last 
day to withdraw without grade penalty is on or 
before the 60% point in any given term or session. 
Withdrawals after that date are not allowed. 

Students who stop attending class prior to the 
60% point in the term and do not withdraw 
themselves, faculty may "unofficially" withdraw 
students from the course for non-attendance or 
failure of adhering to their attendance policy. 
Students should read their instructor's course 
syllabus for the grading and attendance policy. 
Faculty may record a grade of F for non- 
attendance or a W Both official and unofficial 
withdrawals and F grades for non-attendance are 
acknowledged as valid by the College and have an 
impact on the students' record. Students' 

financial aid will be impacted by any change in 
enrollment status resulting in W, F and other 
unsatisfactory progress grades. See Financial Aid 
Section and College Policy for additional 
guidelines.

Payment can be made with cash, credit card (VISA, 
MasterCard, Discover, and American Express), debit 
card, and check or money order made payable to 
Broward College. 

There are three ways to remit payment: 

• By credit card on the web 

• By check or money order mailed to the 
Willis Holcombe Center Cashier's Office 
(see check information below) 

• By cash, check, money order, debit card, or

Broward College 
Willis Holcombe Center 
Cashier's Office, Bldg.33 room 108

Payment of Student Accounts Due to the 
College 

In accordance with Florida Statutes, Chapter 
1010.03, the College is authorized to restrict the 
release of transcripts, the awarding of diplomas and 
access to other resources and services of the College. 

When a receivable or obligation balance is due, a 
financial hold is immediately generated on the 
student's record. This financial hold may prevent 
the release of transcripts, diplomas, certificates, and 
block future registration. The financial hold will 
remain on the student's record until all debt is paid 
to the college in full. If an account is sent to a 
collection agency the debtor is responsible for all 



collection costs associated with the debt. Any 
educational debt must be specifically discharged in 
bankruptcy or the transcript can be held until the 
debt is paid. Examples of debt that will block 
registration include, but arc not limited to, returned 
checks and the associated check fees and fines, 
credit card charge backs, tuition fee deficiencies, 
financial aid overpayments, bookstore charges, 
collection agency fees, and delinquent debt that is 
written off. Students will not be able to register 
until the debt is paid in full. 

Third-Party Authorization 

If all or part of the student's registration fees are 
being paid by an external agency (employer, a 
government agency, military tuition assistance, etc.), 
the student must present the current form of 
authorization (letter, voucher, etc.) to a campus 
Cashier's Office by the Fee Payment Deadline- 
provided in the online Academic Calendar and the 
college catalog. 

This authorization must be for the current term and 
must indicate a specific dollar amount tor tuition, 
fees and/or books and supplies. Students are 
responsible for paying any remaining balance by the 
fee payment deadline. If the current authorization is 
not presented, the student's account will not be 
creeiited properly and the student's schedule may be 
deleted. 

If the external agency revokes the authorization or 
subsequendv denies payment for classes, fees and/or 
books and supplies included on the voucher or 
authorization letter, the student will be responsible 
for repayment by the bill due date. 

Florida Pre-Paid Program 

Students who are plan participants in good standing 
may apply their Florida Pre-Paid coverage via the 
web. The first time a student logs on each term, a 
web screen will alert the student that Florida Pre- 
Paid coverage is available. From this screen the 
student may opt to apply Florida Pre-Paid or 
continue without applying coverage for the term. 
The student will receive credit for the maximum 
amount that can be billed. Florida Pre-Paid credit is 
limited to the amount of credit hours remaining on 
the student's plan. Students are responsible for 
paying any remaining balance by the fee payment 
deadline. If for any reason the College is unable to 
complete the billing process, the creciit will be 
reversed and the student will be billed with an 
immediate elue date. Students who have applied 
Florida Pre-Paid via the web but later elect not to

judicial branch of Florida's government are eligible 
for a State Employee Waiver. Eligible employees 
may have tuition and course fees waived for a 
maximum of 6 credit hours per term and are

collection agency, the individual will be responsible 
for all collection costs. In the event of legal action 
for recovery, the maker or drawer may be 
additionally liable for court costs and reasonable 
attorney fees as prescribed by law. 

Students with unpaid returned checks and the 
associated returned check fees and fines will not be 
able to register for classes until the debt is paid in 
full. 



Credit Card Chargeback Policy

financial aid may receive a refund pending a review 
of the student's continued eligibility by the Office of 
Student Financial Services to determine the impact 
of any enrollment changes made by the student. . 
If the student provides authorization, any 
outstanding debt owed by the student to the College 
can be deducted from any excess aid, but cannot 
exceed $200. 

Students who are administratively withdrawn from 
course(s) for disciplinary reasons are not entitled to a 
refund. Students whose schedule was paid using 
Financial Aid funds, depending on the 
administrative withdrawal date, the student may owe 
money to the College for any unearned financial aid 
funds that were already paid to cover classes and any 
refunded to the student.

Refund for Continuing Education Courses 

A 100% refund for continuing education courses 
shall occur up to the date of the first class for those 
classes meeting only once. A 100% refund for 
continuing education courses shall occur up to the 
second class period for those classes meeting more 
than once. 

Refunds Due to Extenuating Circumstances 

When a student is required to withdraw from all 
courses because of documented circumstances 
determined by the College to be exceptional and 
beyond the control of the student, and the student 
submits a petition for refund to the campus where 
the class(es) were taken during the term after the 
official drop period, but prior to the withdrawal date 
of the current term. A campus president or other 
senior administrator may approved a 100% refund if 
the documented circumstances warrant one.. Such 
circumstances may include, but are not limited to, 
serious illness, involuntary call to active military 
duty, and other emergency circumstances or 
extraordinary situations. The Campus President or 
Senior Adminstrator may consider petitions for 
refunds outside the specified time frames. 

Students have the responsibility to learn and comply 
with prerequisites and co-requisites for courses in 
which they are enrolled. When students are not in 
compliance and do not drop the course(s) by the 
College's official drop period, refunds may not be 
given. 



NOTE: Universities may consider the number of 
withdrawals when considering students for 
admission. Excessive withdrawals (W) and courses 
not related to students' program of study could 
result in a higher tuition rate at public colleges and 
universities in the State of Florida. 

Veterans Third Party Authorization 

For Veterans claiming military Tuition Assistance as 
well as Post-9/11 GI Bill Chapter 33 education 
benefits, the same class (es) may not be paid by both 
Military Tuition Assistance and Chapter 33 benefits. 
Military Tuition Assistance may only be used to pay 
course costs that are not paid by Chapter 33 benefits 
first. 

Refund of Fees to Veteran and Vocational 
Rehabilitation Students 

Veteran students must adhere to the withdrawal 
policies as outlined in the college catalog. Students 
receiving Veterans benefits must complete all 
coursework each term to avoid being billed for 



withdrawing or dropping classes. If a veteran 
student does not attend class after the drop and add 
period in each session, the student will be withdrawn 
from classes or receive a failing grade for non- 
attendance. Withdrawing or dropping courses could 
result in termination of benefits and/or owing 
money to VA and Broward College. It is 
the veteran's responsibility to notify the Veteran 
Coordinator about withdrawing from any class at 
any point during the term. Veterans should register 
only for the courses which can be successfully 
completed. Dropping courses can affect a student's 
enrollment and change the award resulting in an 
overpayment. This overpayment will cause the 
student to owe money. 

Veterans who receive financial aid must adhere to 
the withdrawal policies affecting all financial aid 
students, including the Federal Return of Title IV 
Funds. This policy applies to any student who 
officially or unofficially withdraws from all Broward 
College classes during a term in which the student is 
receiving any form of Title IV aid. This aid includes 
the Pell Grant, Supplemental Educational 
Opportunity Grant, Academic Competitiveness 
Grant, Federal Direct Student Loans; Subsidized 
and Unsubsidized, and PLUS Loans. 

If a student does not attend class within two weeks 
after the drop/add period in each session, the 
student will be withdrawn from classes or receive a 
failing grade for non-attendance. Students should 
not withdraw from any courses to avoid repayment 
of financial aid funds. See the Federal Return of 
Title IV Funds Policy below. 

Federal Return of Title IV Funds policy 

The Federal Return of Title IV Funds policy applies 
to any student who has officially or unofficially 
withdrawn from all BC classes in a term for which 
he/she is receiving any form of Title IV aid. This aid 
includes the Pell Grant, Supplemental Educational 
Opportunity Grant, Academic Competitiveness 
Grant, Federal Direct Student Loans; Subsidized 
and Unsubsidized, and PLUS Loans. 



The Office of Student Financial Services will use the 
Federal Title IV formula to determine the 
percentage of funds that were "earned" for the 
portion of the term enrolled. If a student has 
received more aid than he/she earned, based on the 
withdrawal date from classes, federal law requires 
that the College must return the money to the 
Federal government. The student must repay the

College within 45 days of notification or lose 
eligibility for future federal aid payments. For copies 
of the complete policy on the Return of Title IV aid, 
please go to your campus Student Financial Services 
Office. 

Florida Residency for Tuition Purposes * 

BC's tuition and fees are based upon status as a 
permanent legal Florida resident. In determining a 
Florida resident for tuition purposes, the burden of 
proof rests with the applicant. BC follows Florida 
Statutes F.S. 1009.21 and State Board of Education 
rules regarding residency for tuition purposes. 

For tuition purposes, a Florida resident, or if a 
dependent child, his/her parent(s), must have 
established and maintained a legal residence in the 
state for at least 12 consecutive months immediately 
prior to the first day of classes. The applicant must 
provide clear and convincing documentary evidence 
that his/her length of residence, or if a dependent 
child, his/her parent(s) length of residence, was for 
the purpose of maintaining a bona fide domicile and 
not for the purpose of maintaining a temporary 
residence for tuition purposes. Each student is 
required to provide a statement of residency through 
the submission of a Florida Resident for Tuition 
Purposes Affidavit . 

A dependent child whose parents are divorced or 
separated may qualify as a resident for tuition 
purposes if either parent is a legal resident of Florida 
regardless of which parent claims the child as a 
dependent for federal income tax purposes. 

A dependent child living with an adult relative other 
than his/her parent(s) may qualify as a Florida 
resident for tuition purposes if the adult relative has 
maintained a legal residence in the State of Florida 
for 12 consecutive months immediately prior to the 
student's first day of classes. The dependent child 
must have lived with the relative for five consecutive 
years immediately preceding the term in which 
residency classification is being requested and 
claimed by that relative as a "dependent" under the 
Federal Income Tax Codes. 

The following categories will be considered as 
Florida residents for tuition purposes. 

• Active duty members of the armed forces 
stationed in Florida, or whose home of record is 
in Florida, and their dependents. 

• Full-time instructional and administrative 
personnel employed by a public educational 
institution and their dependents. 



• Qualified beneficiaries under the Florida Pre- 
Paid Post-secondary Expense Program. 

• Others as permitted by Florida statute or rule. 

The applicant may be asked to submit the following 
documentation for himself/herself, parent(s) or the 
qualifying person. 

• A copy of a Florida driver's license. 

• Proof of continuous physical presence in 
Florida for 12 consecutive months immediately 
preceding the first day of classes. 

• Proof of being self-supporting for the 12 
consecutive months immediately prior to the 
first day of classes. 

• Any other documentation required to support a 
claim of Florida residency for tuition purposes. 

Any student who seeks reclassification as a Florida 
resident must complete and submit a Florida 
Residency Appeal form obtained online or through 
any BC Admissions Office. All Florida Residency 
Appeals will be reviewed by the Florida Residency 
Appeal Committee and a decision provided to the 
student in writing. At least three supporting 
documents must be submitted with the Appeal for 
reclassification prior to the first day of classes for 
the term in which reclassification is sought. 

*Residency requirements are subject to change 
pending the decisions of the Florida Legislature.

What is Financial Aid? 

Financial Aid is assistance from federal, state, and 
institutional sources offered in the form of grants 
(Pell, Federal Supplemental Educational 
Opportunity Grant, Florida Student Assistance 
Grant, Financial Aid Fee (Merit and Need), 
scholarships (Institutional and Private), work 
programs (Federal and State), and loans (Federal 
Direct Subsidized - need based, Unsubsidized - 
not need based; Direct Plus Parent Loans; Private 
Loans). Students who qualify may expect to 
receive a financial aid award that will be a 
combination of sources. Financial aid helps fund 
an education while the student attends Broward 
College. 

Financial Aid Application Procedure 

Broward College strongly recommends that all 
students apply for financial aid regardless of their 
circumstances by going online to www.fafsa.gov . 

Note: Students must apply for aid each academic 



year and are encouraged to apply early. The 
Federal application period for the Free 
Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA) 
opens after January 1, of each calendar year and 
closes 18 months later on June 30 of the following 
year. All information provided on the FAFSA is 
subject to verification by the Federal government- 
accuracy is important. 

Financial Aid Deadline 

For Financial Aid to be available by the tuition 
due date, and funds available for bookstore 
charges, students must complete the FAFSA and 
submit verification documents by the deadline for 
the term. Students attending Broward College for 
the first time must also be registered for classes or 
an Admission and Registration orientation session 
by the deadline. The 2011-2012 deadline dates are: 
Fall 2011 July 15,2011 

Winter 2012 November 11, 2011 

Summer 2012 - March 23, 2012 

If the deadline is not met, students can still apply 
and submit forms, but will have to pay for tuition 
and books on their own. Students who pay on 
their own may be reimbursed depending on 
enrollment and eligibility. 

Initial Eligibility Requirements 

Although parents and students are expected to 
contribute to a student's educational expenses, the 
federal government does consider income, 
number of dependents, and other information 
when determining a student's financial need. 
Financial assistance is provided after a 
determination is made that the resources of the 
family are insufficient to meet the student's 
educational expenses. 

Eligible students may receive a combination ot 
grants, scholarships, work-study and loans as part 
of their financial aid package. Financial aid is 
based on an individual's financial need, college 
costs, and the availability of funds. 
To be eligible, a student must be: 

1. A U.S. citizen with a valid Social Section 
Number; 

2. An eligible permanent resident, or in the U.S. 
for other than temporary purposes and be 
able to provide proof of such; 



Jroward College 



2011-2012 College Catalog 



www.hroward.edu 



3. Enrolled or accepted for enrollment in an 
eligible program leading to an, A.A., A.S., 
A.A.S., BS or a federally-approved certificate 
at Broward College; 

4. Making Satisfactory Academic Progress in the 
selected course of study according to Broward 
College guidelines; 

5. Registered with Selective Service, if required 
to do so (applies to males between the ages 
of 18 and 25); 

6. Able to provide a valid high school diploma, 
GED or show ability to benefit. Ability to 
benefit requirements can be met with 6 credit 
hours of college credit that applies to the 
program of study, or with passing scores on 
the College Placement Test (CPT) 

The student must also sign the statements of 
educational purpose located on the (FASFA). 

Other Eligibility Criteria 

The student must not: 

1 . Be in default on a prior student loan; or 

2. Owe any prior financial obligations to the 
College or the federal government; 

3. Have been convicted of a drug offense; 

Dependency Status 

The federal government provides specific 
questions to determine dependency status. If a 
student cannot answer "yes" to any of the 
questions, that student is considered dependent of 
their parents for financial aid purposes. 
In Step Three on the FAFSA, the questions are 
summarized as follows: 

• Age 24 or older 

• Married 

• Seeking a graduate degree 

• Veteran 

• Dependents -children or other 

• If, since age 13, a student is: 

• A ward of the court 
/orphan/legal guardian 

• An emancipated minor 

• A homeless or at-risk 
homeless youth 

If a student is not in any one of the above 
categories, then the student is considered 
dependent and must provide parental financial 
information. 



Steps to "Finish What you Start" 

Apply for Financial Aid: 

• Complete the FAFSA for academic year 
2011-12 after January 1, 2011, through 
June 30, 2012, and for the academic year 
2012-13, January 1, 2012, through June 
30, 2013. The FAFSA can be accessed 
online at www.fafsa.gov . Students should 
put the Broward College School Code 
001500 in Item #101 a. 

• TIP: Students should also carefully 
complete the planned housing code (step 
6). Students and parents need a 
Department of Education Personal 
Identification Number (PIN) to 
electronically sign the FAFSA. A PIN, 
may be obtained at www.pin.ed.gov . The 
PIN also allows a student to make 
changes and view the application status. 

• After Application 

The , students will receive an email 
message from the federal processor 
confirming receipt of the application and 
including a Student Aid Report (SAR) 
usually within 48 hours. The financial aid 
office will receive the same information in 
the form of an Institutional Student 
Information Record (ISIR). The College 
uses the information on the ISIR to 
determine financial need and eligibility for 
grants, scholarships, loans, and work- 
study. Students should review the SAR 
for accuracy and make necessary 
corrections prior to any action the College 
would need to take. 

Professional Judgment 

Financial aid administrators are empowered to 
make professional judgment decisions for students 
under certain, extenuating circumstances 
including: 

Dependency Overrides - Dependency overrides 
are done on a case by case basis when 
circumstances between the parents and the 
student are compromised. The override requires 
extensive documentation. 

Income Adjustments - Income adjustments are 
done on a case by case basis when the financial 



74 



www.hroward.edu 



2011-2012 College Catalog 



Broward Collegi 



information requested on the FAFSA does not 
truly reflect the current financial situation in the 
household which includes changes in 
employment. The income adjustment requires 
extensive supporting documentation. 

Further information and forms can be found at 
www.broward.edu/sfs under Forms. 

Verification 

The federal government randomly selects student 
financial aid applications for a process called 
verification. This process mandates that the 
College compare the financial information 
submitted on the FAFSA. To determine if 
additional documentation is required to complete 
the Federally mandated verification process, 
students should log on to MyBC and click on 
financial aid and application status. Red flags often 
indicates verification and that the office needs 
more information to complete the file. To avoid 
delays in financial aid awarding, students should 
respond to any requests as soon as possible. 

Effective for the FAFSA year 2012-13 that opens 
for application in January 1, 2012, students or 
parents of eligible students should use the IRS 
system to populate their tax return information, if 
eligible. Eligible students or parents of eligible 
students, who do not use this system, will be 
notified by the Federal government to return to 
their FAFSA application and perform the IRS 
match. Students selected for verification to verify 
any income fields will be required to request an 
IRS transcript as proof to clear the verification 
flag. Copies of tax returns will no longer be 
acceptable for income verification performed for 
the next aid year 2012-13. For the 2011-12 aid 
year, if a student's application is selected for 
verification, the tax returns and W-2s, will be 
accepted along with the verification worksheet 
and any other requested documents. 

Packaging and Awarding Aid 

Students cannot be awarded aid until verification 
documents are submitted, financial aid staff 
conducts the verification, the corrections are sent 
to the Federal government and the Federal 
government sends the College a clean Institutional 
Student Information Record (ISIR). Once the 
College receives a clean ISIR, then aid can be 
packaged, awarded and posted on students' 



accounts. When aid is awarded, students can view 
their awards on MyBC. 



Continued Aid Eligibility Requirements 

Satisfactory Academic Progress 

The College's Academic Standards of Progress 
policy and Federal and state regulations require 
that students meet academic standards in order to 
stay enrolled at BC in good standing and also to 
remain eligible to receive financial aid funds. 
Standards are measured by grade point average 
cumulative and term, course completion rate each 
term related to attempted and earned credits, and 
the overall program completion pace, which must 
not exceed 150% of the published length of the 
program by College. Students (including veterans) 
must make academic progress in all course work 
in order to receive financial aid and veterans 
benefits. Students must maintain at least a 2.0 
grade point average and complete at least 67% of 
the coursework attempted each term. Students 
should have their program completed within 
150% of the published program length and should 
not take excess credit hours beyond the number 
of credit courses needed to complete the program: 
a 60 credit degree program within three years full- 
time and upper division students cannot have 
exceeded a 120 credit program within six years 
full-time. College prep coursework is excluded 
from standards of academic progress for financial 
aid, but is included in the students' cumulative and 
overall College grade point averages. 

The College will take the following progressive 
steps to help students understand that thev are 
jeopardizing their ability to remain eligible for 
financial aid. 

Financial Aid Warning 

Student Performance falls in one or more of 
the following categories: 

• Students' qualitative measure, term or 
cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 

• Students' pace to completion each 
semester is less than 67% of their hours 
attempted and earned tor credit.

201 1-2012 College Catalog 



www.hroward.edu 



College Action: Students placed on warning can 
receive aid for the subsequent term and will have 
one term to improve academic performance. 

Student Actions: Within the first two weeks of 
the warning term, prior to disbursement/refund 
of excess funds, students on Financial Aid 
Warning must follow the steps indicated below: 

• Meet with an academic advisor to create 
an academic plan 

• Explain the reasons for lack of academic 
progress and determine what needs to 
change in order to make academic 
progress 

• Discuss campus tutoring opportunities 

• Ask about workshops on study skills, time 
management 

• Set reasonable expectations related to 
balancing school and work 

Consequences of Non-Action by the Student: 
Loss of aid eligibility, which will result in a bill for 
current enrolled courses due to the loss of aid. 
At the end of the warning period, students who: 

• Show progress toward degree completion 
in one or more of the standards of 
academic progress measures will continue 
with their academic plan and receive aid 
without appeal and continue to make 
progress as outlined in that academic 
plan. 

• Meet all the standards of academic 
progress, will be removed from warning 
and continue their aid eligibility as normal 
with no conditions. 

• Make no progress in any of the standards 
of progress measures, and have no 
extenuating circumstances that impacted 
their ability to make forward progress, 
will lose their aid eligibility without an 
appeal option. (See below to determine 
how aid can be re-established). 

• Make no progress and lose eligibility, but 
can provide non-biased documentation 
for an extenuating circumstance that 
occurred during the payment term, may 
appeal their non-eligibility status, obtain 
and file a petition to determine whether 
their aid can be reinstated. 



Students may reestablish their eligibility to receive 
assistance under the title IV, HEA programs if 
their: 

• Appeal is successful. Students who appeal 
successfully will be placed on Financial 
Aid Probation. 

BASIS FOR APPEAL PROCESS 

When a student's lack of progress is due to 
extenuating circumstances beyond their control, 
the student may file an appeal for reinstatement of 
financial aid eligibility. 

• Extenuating circumstances are generally those 
that were beyond the student's control. 

° Extenuating circumstances include, but 
are not limited to the following: 

■ Death of immediate family member(s)

business days after receiving the request from the 
student. The decision of the Vice President for 
Student Affairs and Enrollment Management shall 
be final. 

The College does not permit students to submit a 
petition who, after a term of warning, fails to 
make progress in any standards of academic 
progress measure and cannot provide 
documentation for an extenuating or mitigating 
circumstance. In these cases, students may re- 
establish their aid by completing 6 college-level 
credits with a C or better and then petition for 
reinstatement. 

After the end of each evaluation period, students 
are notified by email of their SAP status. Students 
may also view their status by accessing their 
MyBC online account. 

NOTE: It is the student's responsibility to be 
aware of initial eligibility requirements for aid and 
minimum academic requirements, to ensure 
continued eligibility for aid. Adherence to these 
policy standards and Federal regulations is 
required by all students at Broward College. The 
College reserves the right to review and modify 
this policy annually. 

For more comprehensive information on 
Standards of Academic Progress, please visit 
www.broward.edu/sfs 

Remedial/Preparatory /Non-credit- Federal 
regulations allow financial aid to cover up to 30 
remedial/preparatory credits (equivalent to one 
academic year) for any student. If a student is 
enrolled in classes and has already taken 30 credits 
of remediation, financial aid will not pay for 
additional remedial classes. This does not include 
ESL courses. 

Financial aid does not cover non-credit courses. 

Types of Financial Aid 

The FAFSA is the one application needed for 
almost all grants, scholarships, work-study and 
loans. These funds are available through the 
federal government, the State of Florida, Broward 
College and the Broward College Foundation. If 
eligible, students can expect a combination of 
grants, scholarships, loans and/or work-study in 



their financial aid package. In order to "Finish 
What You Start" with minimal financial concern, 
students should apply as early as possible. 

Grants 

Grants are funded by federal or state programs 
and do not require repayment. Grants arc- 
awarded to students who demonstrate exceptional 
financial need. 

• Pell Grant - the foundation of all financial 
aid programs. Students can apply 
throughout the academic year for a Pell 
grant by completing the FAFSA and any 
other required Broward College forms. 
Eligibility is determined by the federal 
government and is based on several 
factors including household size, income 
and number of family members in college. 

• Federal Supplemental Educational 
Opportunity Grant - Additional grant 
assistance for exceptionally needy 
students who are Pell eligible and apply 
early. 

• Florida Student Assistance Grant - State 
grant awarded to students with 
demonstrated financial need. If eligible, 
this grant may be renewed. Because 
funding is limited, students must 
complete the application process early. 

Scholarships 

Scholarships are generally funded by Broward 
College, the Broward College Foundation or 
generous private donors or organizations. 
Scholarships are awarded to students who 
demonstrate academic excellence, but many 
scholarships are also available for students who 
demonstrate financial need and have at least a 2.0 
grade point average. Each scholarship has its own 
criteria and does not require repayment. An online 
scholarship application allows students to submit 
their information electronically. The system 
matches scholarship criteria with eligible students. 
Scholarships are based on the availability of funds 
and cannot be guaranteed. Most scholarships 
require students to complete a FAFSA. 

Scholarships administered by the Student 
Financial Sen-ices Office are either awarded in the 
financial aid package or students may apply using 
the online Broward College Scholarship 



Jroward College

application. Students should have a completed 
financial aid file (FAFSA and all requested 
documents), and complete the online scholarship 
application. Available scholarships are advertised 
on the Broward College website in July of each 
academic year 

Florida Bright Futures 

Florida Bright Futures scholarships reward Florida 
high school students with high academic 
achievement. Students apply for the Bright 
Futures Scholarship during the final year of high 
school. Effective with the academic year 2011-12, 
Bright Futures scholars must complete a FAFSA 
and all order prescribed requirements by the State 
of Florida. 



Students who are first-time borrowers, have not 
made required academic progress or have 
borrowed excessively must attend a Debt 
Management Workshop on any campus. Times 
and locations are available online or at the Student 
Financial Services Office. 

Loan Disbursement Timeline 

Loan funds cannot be disbursed unless the Master 
Promissory Note (MPN) is completed. For first- 
time borrowers, loan funds cannot be disbursed 
until 30 days after the first day of classes. 

Types of Loans 

Federal student loans are need and non-need 
based. 






If Bright Futures recipients are eligible for Federal 
student aid as a result of their FAFSA, students 
must also completed all the Federal student aid 
requirements, including verification if applicable, 
before any need-based aid is packaged and 
awarded. Students who receive Florida Bright 
Future must maintain eligibility for renewal and 
comply with the State of Florida renewal 
guidelines 

http://www.floridastudentfinancialaid.org/ssfad/ 
bf/renewrequiredhrs.htm . as well as comply with 
the College's Academic Standards of Progress 
policy 

Federal Student Loans 

Federal student loans are also part of a student's 
financial aid package. All subsidized and 
unsubsidized student loans are funded direcdy 
from the federal government through the William 
D. Ford Direct Loan program. Loans must be 
repaid with interest in a specific time period after a 
period of non-enrollment. Repayment is deferred 
while students are attending classes at least half- 
time. Students whose enrollment changes to less 
than a half-time status, may jeopardize their 
eligibility to continue to receive student loans. 
Students who want to utilize loans to attend 
school must have a completed financial aid file. 

Application Process 

Students must log onto www.studendoans.gov to 
complete Entrance Counseling and a Master 
Promissory Note (MPN) to complete the student 
loan application process. 



Direct Subsidized Loans are based on financial 
need. The federal government pays the interest 
on the loans while students are in school at least 
half-time, during grace periods, and during 
authorized periods of deferment. 

Direct Unsubsidized Loans are not need-based. 
Students are responsible for the interest that 
accrues from the date of the first disbursement 
forward. Interest can be paid while students are in 
school or it can be postponed until repayment. 
Postponing interest means the interest will be 
capitalized or added to the principal amount, 
increasing the balance on which interest accrues 
daily. 

Direct Parent PLUS loans are also available to 
parents of dependent students. Parents may be 
eligible to borrow up to the total cost of 
attendance less all financial aid received. Parents 
are eligible for the PLUS loan if they meet the 
minimum government credit requirements. 
Parents begin repayment 30 days after the final 
disbursement for the academic year. The PLUS 
loan is based on a ten-year repayment plan with 
no prepayment penalties. 

Work-Study Programs 

Work-study programs allow students to work 
either on or off campus to help defray their 
educational expenses. Students can work up to 20 
hours per week depending on eligibility. Students 
can contact the campus financial aid office to 
determine if they are eligible and if so, can 
research job openings on the web at: 
http://www.broward.edu/workstudyjobs

Broward College < !ro t; 



The Federal Work-Study Program provides 
students an opportunity to work and earn up to 
$9.00 an hour for 20 hours per week. Funds are 
limited and awards are made to eligible students 
who complete their financial aid file early. 
Students must also complete an employment 
packet prior to beginning employment. Students 
who elect to work in a Federal Work-study 
position on campus can exclude the income 
earned through work-study from the adjusted 
gross income (AGI). This can benefit students 
who are trying to manage their aid eligibility. 
Students should weigh the difference between 
part-time off campus jobs with on-campus FWS 
positions. 

America Reads /Counts 

This program is funded through the Federal 
Work-study Program described above. It offers 
students an opportunity to tutor reading and math 
in local elementary 7 and middle schools. Students 
may work a minimum of 20 hours per week and 
are paid $10.00 per hour. Security clearance is 
necessary. 

Florida Work Experience Program provides 
eligible students who are Florida residents an 
opportunity to work in the public school system 
as teacher aides or tutors earning $10.00 an hour. 
Students may also work on campus earning up to 
$9.00 per hour. Funds are limited. 

STUDENT FINANCIAL AID REFUNDS 

Enrollment Verification 

Before aid can be disbursed to the College to 
cover tuition and any excess refunded to students, 
attendance in all enrolled classes must be verified 
by the faculty. Students should attend all classes, 
especially the first day of class, as faculty 
disseminate valuable class information every day 
the class meets. If a student does not attend class, 
per the faculty requirements to meet the outcomes 
of the course, within two weeks after the 
drop/add period in each session, the student will 
be withdrawn from classes and will receive a 
(WN) non-attendance. Further information can be 
found on the web at www.broward.edu/sfs under 
Withdrawal Policies. 

On-going attendance monitoring--Once 

attendance is initially verified, the faculty monitor 



students' attendance throughout the term. Am 
changes in the enrollment status will cause a 
change in the aid awarded to students. Any type of 
withdrawal up to the 60% point of the term WILL 
impact students' financial aid. 

Advisement TIP: Students should plan to attend 
ALL classes, including the first day. .And, equally 
important, students should register only for the 
courses which can be successfully completed. It is 
the student's responsibility to notify the financial 
aid office about withdrawing from any class at any 
point during the term. Withdrawing from courses 
can negatively affect a student's satisfactory 
academic progress status. Students who withdraw 
from classes may be required to repay some of the 
funds they receive from the federal government. 

Returning Unearned Student Federal Aid 
Funds 

Return of Title IV Funds Policy 

The federal government requires colleges and 
universities to establish a Return of Title IV policy 
to outlines when students must repay federal 
funds when their aid eligibility changes. \\ men 
students officially withdraw or have been 
unofficially withdrawn by a faculty member in any 
and all classes due to attendance failure or dropout 
status, during a term or session for which the}- are 
receiving Title IV student financial aid, a portion, 
if not all, aid may be returned. Aid funds 
impacted are as follows: the Pell Grant, 
Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, 
Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans and PLUS 
Loans. 

The federal government provides a formula to 
determine if the student will need to repay dollars 
received after courses are withdrawn. If a student 
has received more aid than they are entided to 
receive, federal law requires that the College must 
return the aid overpayment and the student must 
repay the College or make satisfactory repayment 
arrangements within 45 days of notification or 
lose eligibility for future federal aid. The complete 
policy on Return of Tide IV aid is accessible 
online on the Broward College financial aid 
website.

and Services) 

WINGS is a comprehensive re-entry program 
offering assistance to women 35 years or older, are 
in transition due to the separation, divorce, death, 
or disability of a spouse. 

Due to their circumstances, they need to enter the 
job market, or return to school for training to re- 
establish them as responsible, independent, self- 
supporting citizens. They have many barriers to 
employment due to their lack of recent work 
experience, lack of education, lack of updated 
skills, and low self-esteem. Our program helps to 
promote returning to school to update skills and 
continue their educational pursuits. We assist 
these women with scholarship to relieve their 
financial burden. Our program provides career 
counseling and assessment, job search skills, 
interviewing and resume writing. 
Scholarships are awarded each term to students 
taking at least 6 credits and showing financial 
need.

Transcript Evaluation 

Transfer students must provide official transcripts 
from all previously attended colleges or universities. 
Transcripts should be sent to Broward College, 
College Registrar's Office, 225 East Las Olas Blvd., 
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, 33301, prior to the 
students' term of enrollment. Students who have 
completed post-secondary work outside of the 
United States are required to provide a commercial 
evaluation of all course work completed. An official 
evaluation of credit courses' transferability is made 
after the student is admitted to the College. All 
official transcripts from previously attended 
institutions must be received before an official 
evaluation is considered complete. Transfer credits 
may be accepted from regionally accredited colleges 
or universities and/ or from institutions belonging to 
the Florida State Common Course Numbering 
System or from out-of-country universities when 
commercial evaluations of those transcripts are 
provided. In some instances, transferability of 
credits is done on a course-by-course analysis. 

Upper Division coursework is evaluated for students 
pursuing Baccalaureate degrees. BC honors 2+2 
with Florida Public Colleges and Universities for 
earned Associate in Arts degrees. According to the 
College's transfer credit policy 5.34, previously 
earned credits may transfer in, but may not be 
accepted for a specific degree program. Grades 
earned from other colleges are not computed in the 
cumulative grade point average at BC. 

Broward College shall honor suspension and 
dismissal sanctions imposed by institutions from 
which students transfer. Consequently, students 
seeking admission to the college should meet with 
an academic advisor to submit an Academic 
Standards Petition. Transfer students who have

Broward College 



already completed an A. A. or baccalaureate degree at 
another college or university, cannot enroll in an 
A.A. degree program at BC. 

Academic Standards of Progress 

Broward College strives to provide the highest 
quality of instructional and support services. 
Students accepted into certificate and degree 
programs will be continually evaluated to ensure that 
standards of progress are achieved and to identify 
and provide assistance to students who experience 
academic difficulties. BC is committed to providing 
assistance for all students in order to provide an 
optimal learning experience so that students will be 
able to succeed in achieving their educational goals. 

College regulations regarding academic standards of 
progress apply to all degree and certificate students 
and it aligns to eligibility requirements for continued 
Federal financial aid (see policy on Student Financial 
Services Programs 6Hx2-5.11). In determining 
academic progress, college credit, vocational credit 
and college preparatory credit are combined in the 
term and cumulative grade point averages. "Earned 
Credit" is defined as all courses in which the student 
receives a grade. Courses taken for audit, courses 
for which a student receives a refund, and courses in 
which a student has withdrawn during the 
withdrawal period will not be included in the 
determination of academic standing. 

Academic Warning 

Any student who does not achieve a degree GPA or 
cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher in a term will be 
placed on academic warning. Students on academic 
warning will be notified and should see an academic 
advisor or counselor prior to registering for the next 
term. A student will be removed from academic 
warning when he/she earns both degree and 
cumulative GPAs of at least a 2.0. A student on 
academic warning who fails to achieve a term GPA 
of 2.0 or higher for two successive terms of 
enrollment will be placed on academic probation, 
which is the next level of academic intervention. 

Academic Probation 

A student on academic warning who fails to achieve 
a term GPA of 2.0 or higher for two successive 
terms will be placed on academic probation. 
Students on academic probation will be required to 
see an academic advisor or counselor prior to 
registering for the next term. The status of students 
who demonstrate forward progress by earning two 
successive term GPAs of at least a 2.0 will be 
changed from probation status to warning status. A 



student on academic probation who fails to achieve 
a term GPA of 2.0 or higher for two successive- 
terms will be placed on academic suspension, which 
is the next level of academic intervention. To be 
removed from academic probation, a student must 
earn a term GPA of 2.0 GPA or higher for two 
successive terms of enrollment. 

Academic Suspension A student on academic 
probation who fails to achieve a term GPA of 2.0 or 
higher for two successive terms of enrollment will 
be placed on academic suspension. Any student on 
academic warning and who earns less than a 1.0 
term GPA and/or cumulative GPA for two 
successive terms will be immediately placed on 
academic suspension for a minimum of one year. 
After the first academic suspension and after the 
student has satisfied the penalty, the student must 
see the Dean of Student Affairs or designee. The 
student must follow the instructions pertaining to 
course selection. Any subsequent suspensions and 
students who were suspended due to term and 
cumulative GPAs of less than 1.0 will require the 
student to petition and appear before the Academic 
Standards Committee before continued enrollment 
at the College can be considered. 

Cancellation of Previous Unsatisfactory Record 

Students in Associate in Science, Associate in 
Applied Science, Certificate or Diploma Programs 
who have previous unsatisfactory academic records 
may petition for cancellation of their previous 
academic record per F.S. 1001.64. If, at the end of 
24 credit hours, an Associate in Science and 
Associate in Applied Science Degree students have 
achieved a grade point average of 2.0 or above, they 
may be granted full admission and the previous 
unsatisfactory academic record cancelled, except in 
the case of students who were enrolled during or 
after Term 1, 1997-1998. Students enrolled in 
Certificate and Diploma programs must complete 
one third of the total program hours with a grade 
point average ot 2.0 or above. Under normal 
circumstances, such a cancellation would not be 
approved unless the student's unsatisfactory 
performance was at least two (2) years old. 

Canceled academic records will be completely 
disregarded in the calculation of credit hours and 
grade point average. However, permanent academic 
records will show all coursework attempted and all 
grades earned along with a notation about the 
cancellation granted by the College.

Under the articulation agreement binding the Florida 
public community colleges and state universities, this 
policy may not be applied to Associate in Arts 
degree students. 

Class Attendance Policy 

It is the student's responsibility to attend classes to 
ensure that he/she is properly enrolled. 
Requirements for class attendance are determined by 
the instructor and will be outlined in the course 
syllabus. By staying in the class, students are agreeing 
to abide by that attendance policy. 

If a student does not attend class within two weeks 
after the drop/add period in each session he/she 
will be reported as never attended and a WN 
enrollment status will be recorded for non- 
attendance. No refund will be granted. 



Students will notify instructors in advance of 
absences (s) to observe a religious holy day(s) in 
his/her own faith, and shall likewise notify 
instructors in advance of other absences when 
practicable under the circumstances. According to 
College policy 6Hx2-4.18 and F.S. 1001.64, there 
shall be no penalty for a student who is absent 
because of religious holy days, the student's serious 
illness, a death in the immediate family, or statutory 
government responsibilities. If a non-penalized 
absence occurs on the first day of class, the student 
shall notify the instructor of the reason for his/her 
absence at the next class meeting. The student shall 
present documentation for non-penalized absences 
should the faculty member request it. Students will 
be responsible for material covered during an 
absence. Excessive absences may result in 
withdrawal from the course by the professor and a F 
failing grade recorded for the course. 

Campus/Center Closing 

Owing to unanticipated circumstances that are 
beyond anyone's control, or when concerns are 
raised about the safety and/or security of the 
students, faculty, staff, and/or facilities, a campus or 
the College may be closed. For purposes of grading 
and attendance policies, the day(s) during which the 
campus/College is closed shall be considered a non- 
class day(s). When this occurs, each Faculty 
member shall determine how best to make up the 
lost class time. 

Final Grades and Records 

Final grades for each term are retained permanently. 
Grade point averages for graduation and honors are 



calculated only on college and vocational level 
academic work and include work attempted at all 
colleges. The following grades are used to 
calculate the grade point average (GPA):

Incomplete Grade "I" 

An incomplete "I" grade may be given in courses for 
a student who has a reasonable chance of 
successfully completing the course. The student 
who has not completed the required course work by 
the end of the term may be required to provide 
documentation for extenuating circumstances. The 
student should make arrangements to complete the 
work prior to the end of the next major academic 
term. Summer terms are not considered in this time 
limit. If no change is initiated during the next major 
term, the "I" will automatically become an "F" on 
the student's permanent record. If the coursework 
is completed the grade and recalculated GPA will be 
placed on the student's transcript. 

Official Withdrawal T 

Florida State Board of Education requires state 
colleges to adhere to the following procedures 
relating to the award of a "W" as a result of a 
student's withdrawal from a course. 

• The student may withdraw without academic 
penalty from any course by the mid-point of the 
semester. A (W) will be recorded on the 
student's permanent record. 

• The student will be permitted a maximum of 
two withdrawals per course. 



/.broward.edu 



2011-2012 College Catalog 



Broward College 



• Upon the third attempt, the student will not be 
permitted to withdraw and will receive an A, B, 
C, D, or F grade for that course. 

Advisement TIP: Withdrawals from classes affect 
the timeframe to complete the program and will 
impact a student's continued eligibility for Federal 
Student Aid. 

Withdrawal for Non-Attendance "WN" 
A student who does not attend class within two 
weeks after the drop/add period in each session will 
be withdrawn from classes for non-attendance. No 
refund will be given. 

Audit-X and XW 

A student should indicate the desire to audit a 
course when registering for the class and cannot 
change from audit to credit after the drop/add 
period. Up to the end of the withdrawal period, a 
student may change from credit to audit with the 
permission of the Faculty member. A student who 
audits a course must adhere to attendance 
requirements. No grade will be assigned and no 
credit will be awarded. An audit will count as an 
attempt whether or not such enrollment status is 
declared after the drop/add period. 

The transcript will indicate a course was audited by 
listing an "X" grade, but an "XW" indicating 
withdrawal may be given to the student at the 
discretion of a Faculty member for failure to adhere 
to attendance or class requirements of the course. A 
student may take a course previously audited for 
credit but may not petition for credit on the basis of 
the previous audit. 

The cost for auditing a course is the same as taking 
it for credit. A department may exclude a course 
from audit status. College preparatory students, 
who are required to be certified as completing 
competency-based college preparatory instruction, 
may not be enrolled as audit students. 

Non-credit Course "NC" 

The "NC" is assigned automatically for any non- 
credit hour course. "NC" is used for continuing 
education, economic development, lifelong learning, 
and other classes for which no credit is awarded. 

No Grade Assigned "NG" 

The "NG" is used to indicate that a student has not 

satisfied the requirements for a non-credit class. It 



is also used for certain self-paced courses and 
continuing education classes. 

No Grade Reported "NR" 

The "NR" is assigned by the Registrar's Office in 
cases where class rolls have not been submitted in 
time for normal processing of grades. 

Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory "S"/"U" 

The "S" and "U" grades are used only for those 
courses that have received prior approval through 
the curriculum review process to award the 
satisfactory/unsatisfactory grades. 

Grade Appeal Process 

The Grade Appeal Processes apply to final course 
grades and grades received as a result of academic 
dishonesty. The appeal process described in 
Procedure 6Hx2-4.19 provides procedural due 
process to students. 

Grade Appeal Process For Final Course Grades 

The basis for an appeal of the final course grade 
shall be evaluated in terms of the standard 
established by the faculty member as stated in 
his/her syllabus, in accordance with institutional 
policies and state rules/statutes. The appeal must 
demonstrate that the faculty member did not assign 
the final course grade in accordance with the grading 
policy outlined in the course syllabus, which meets 
the standard defined in the Faculty Handbook. 

Each Faculty member shall communicate, in 
writing, his/her grading policy within the first week 
of class meetings of each course. The elements to be 
considered in calculating the student's final course 
grade shall be clearly articulated and all factors to be 
considered in arriving at the final grade shall be 
stated. Any appeal on the grade shall be considered 
against the background and the standard as set forth 
in the faculty member's grading policy as stated in 
the syllabus. In rare cases, the syllabus may need 
modification. Students must be provided widi any 
modifications to the syllabus. 

Grade Appeal Process For Academic 
Dishonesty 

The appeal shall only be based upon the student's 
claim that academic dishonesty did not occur. 

Preliminary Action: If a student thinks that he/she 
has been unfairly graded in a course, the student 
should meet or communicate no later than the 
second week of the next term with the Faculty

member in an attempt to settle the disputed grade 
and avoid the formal Grade Appeal Process. 

The complete grade appeal procedure can be found 
in the Student Handbook and in the Grade Appeal 
Brochure. A copy of the brochure can be obtained 
in the Academic Advisement offices on each 
campus/center. 

Applicable Catalog 

A student who is continuously enrolled in degree, 
certificate or diploma programs (except summer 
terms) from initial enrollment to graduation may 
choose to meet graduation requirements specified in 
either the BC catalog in effect when initially enrolled 
or the catalog in effect at the time of graduation. If 
a student's attendance is interrupted by two or more 
major terms (summer terms excluded), the student 
must meet the requirements of the catalog in effect 
at the time of re-entry, or at the time of graduation. 
A student cannot graduate under a catalog in effect 
at the time of initial enrollment if the College has 
eliminated the degree, certificate or diploma 
program. 

Students entering specialized programs, such as the 
health science programs, may graduate under the 
provision of the catalog in effect when the student 
was admitted to the specialized program. 

Recency of Credit 

College courses completed more than 10 years ago 
may require validation by examination. 

Graduation Honors 

The calculation of the grade point average for 
honors includes the Broward College record and any 
previous credit transferred to Broward College. 
Students may graduate with honors in three grade 
point categories. 

Honors: overall GPA of 3.250-3.499 

High Honors: overall GPA of 3.500-3.749 
Highest Honors: overall GPA of 3.750-4.000 

Honor Students are recognized at graduation and 
honors designations will be shown on final 
transcripts. 

Semester Credit Hour 

For degree, technical certificate and Applied 
Technology programs the unit of credit is the 
semester credit hour, representing 15-16 hours of 
lecture instruction with 50-minute class periods. 
Generally, 30-32 hours of laboratory work count as 



one unit of credit. Clinical courses will vary in the 
number of hours per semester credit hour. For 
Vocational Certificates the unit of credit is the 
vocational credit. Each vocational credit represents 
30 clock hours of instruction. Short sessions, 
Weekend College, and classes that meet less than 
three times per week are adjusted to include the 
same time equivalent as the 16 week terms. 

Semester System 

The academic year is divided into three semesters, 
also known as Terms. Each Term contains several 
Sessions of varying lengths to provide flexibility in 
the scheduling of courses. To earn a comparable 
unit of credit, class meeting times are adjusted 
during the abbreviated Sessions. 

Terms I (fall) and II (winter) are approximately 
seventeen weeks in length. Each of these terms 
includes a Session 2, and a Session 4 of 
approximately eight weeks in length; and a Session 3 
of approximately twelve weeks in length. 

Term III (summer) is approximately twelve weeks in 
length. Term III includes Session 1, which is twelve 
weeks in length, and Sessions 2 and 3 which are six 
weeks in length. 

Grade Forgiveness Policy 

A student who has completed a course and desires 
to improve his/her grade for that course may repeat 
the course only if he/she has earned a "D" or "F" 
grade. The number of repeat attempts is limited to 
two per course. Repeating a course removes the 
previous grade only from a student's grade point 
average. The original grade remains on the 
transcript, but only the grade earned in the last 
attempt is used for calculating the grade point 
average. The State University System articulation 
agreement does not allow courses to be repeated for 
the purpose of changing a student's grade point 
average after the associate degree has been awarded. 

Maximum Attempts Per Course 

Per State Board of Education Rule 6A- 14.0301, a 
student may have only three attempts per course. 
An attempt is defined as enrollment after the 100% 
refund deadline for courses beginning Term 1, 1997. 
Attempts include the original grade, repeat of 
courses, withdrawals and audits. Courses taken at 
other institutions are not counted as an attempt. 

A student may repeat only those courses in which a 
"D" or "F" grade was earned. A fourth attempt may 
be allowed only when a student can provide 



96

2011-2012 College Catalog 



Broward College 



documentation of extenuating circumstances aligned 
to specific term dates. When documentation can be 
provided, the students must meet with an academic 
advisor and submit a petition to the Academic 
Standards Committee. 

This rule does not apply to repeatable courses, such 
as applied music, choir, etc., that have been 
successfully completed and are now being repeated 
for further skill enhancement; or to courses that are 
required to be repeated by a regulatory agency; or 
those that are being repeated as part of the 
regulatory requirement for continuing education to 
stay current in a field such as teacher education. 

Florida law requires colleges to assess students 
the full cost of instruction upon the third attempt. 
The law also provides for exceptions to this extra fee 
if there are extenuating circumstances that can be 
documented by the student, such as a student's 
serious illness, involuntary call to active military 
duty, changes of employment, or other extraordinary 
situations. Petitions for exception to the full cost of 
instruction based on extenuating circumstances can 
be obtained from any campus Registration or 
Advisement office. 

Advisement TIP: Students are strongly 

encouraged to discuss the effect(s) of withdrawing 
or repeating a course with their advisor/ counselor 
and financial services officer to determine the 
potential impact on their academic programs and 
financial aid status. 

Course Pre-requisites and Co-requisites 

Pre-requisite and co-requisite courses are listed with 
each course description. Pre-requisites are academic 
requirements that must be completed before 
enrolling in the next subject level. Students are 
responsible for knowing and satisfactorily 
completing pre-requisite requirements. If a student 
registers for a course for the next term while 
currently enrolled in a pre-requisite course, then the 
student must satisfactorily complete the pre-requisite 
course or withdraw from the higher-level course. 
Otherwise, the student may be dropped from the 
course for which he/she is ineligible. Students, who 
have completed a pre-requisite course at another 
institution, must furnish proof before registering for 
the higher-level course. 

Co-requisites are courses that must be completed 
together such as a science course and the associated 
laboratory Students cannot take one without the 
other. If you drop one, you must drop the other. 



Co-requisite academic requirements are stated within 
the course description section of this catalog. 

Students should know what the academic 
requirements arc before attempting to register for a 
course. Check the course descriptions in this 
catalog. 

Excess Credit Hours 

Florida law F.S. 1009.286 requires colleges to 
encourage students, who intend to enroll in a state 
university, to complete their respective degree 
program with only credit that can be applied to their 
degree program of study to avoid excess hours.. 

Effective July 1, 2009 and amended 2011, state 
universities shall require a student to pay an excess 
hour surcharge equal to out of state tuition rates for 
each credit hour in excess of 115 percent of the 
number of credit hours required to complete the 
baccalaureate degree program. The law also provides 
for exceptions to this extra fee if the credit hours 
were earned under certain circumstances and are not 
calculated as hours required to earn a baccalaureate 
degree. 

Review 1009.286F.S for more detailed information. 
The statute is available online at www. flsenate.gov . 

Student Ombudsman 

The Campus Dean of Student Affairs shall serve as 
the campus and associated center Student 
Ombudsman, and will serve as an advocate for 
students' general issues and concerns. The campus 
Dean of Students will guide students to appropriate 
personnel, and provide students with appropriate 
College policies and procedures. The College 
Ombudsman is the Vice President for Student 
Affairs and Enrollment Management. 

If a student's issue is related to academic standards 
of progress, graduation requirements, access to 
courses, or other academic policies, the Campus 
Dean of Student Affairs, or program Dean for 
limited access programs, will refer the student to the 
Academic Standards Committee. The Academic 
Standards Committee makes recommendations to 
the Vice President for Student Affairs and 
Enrollment Management upon reviewing the 
student's petition and/or after requiring the student 
to appear before the committee and interviewing the 
student regarding the circumstances. The Vice 
President for Student Affairs and Fnrollment 
Management may accept the committee's

the rules, regulations, and requirements of the 
College, or revocation of dismissal from the College 
or other institution for academic or disciplinary 
reasons, must submit their requests in writing to the 
Student Academic Standards Committee. The 
Academic Standards Committee reviews petitions 
for exceptions from students on matters related to 
college rules, regulations and requirements, including

it to the Associate Vice President for 
Student Affairs /College Registrar's Office 
no later than five (5) business days prior to

the deadline must be approved by the 
Campus Dean of Students or Center Dean 
based on extenuating circumstances. 

4. The dates, places and times of the Academic 
Standards Committee are published in the 
College calendar and can be obtained from 
the campus/center student affairs offices. 

5. In cases involving entering new or re-

Academic Honesty 

Broward College expects its students to be honest in 
all of their coursework and activities. Breaches of 
academic honesty include, but are not limited to, 
cheating, plagiarism, misrepresentation, bribery, and 
the unauthorized possession of examinations, 
papers, or other class materials that have not been 
formally released by instructors. A student's 
academic work must be the result of his or her own 
thought, research, or self-expression. 

The term "cheating," includes but is not limited to, 
copying homework assignments from another 
student; working together with another individual on 
a take-home test or homework when specifically 
prohibited from doing so by the instructor, looking 
at text, notes or another person's paper during an 
examination when not permitted to do so. 

Cheating also includes the giving of work formation 
to another student to be copied and/or used as his 
or her own. This includes, but is not limited to, 
giving someone answers to exam questions either 
when the exam is being given or after having taken 
an exam; informing another student of specific 
questions that appear or have appeared on an exam 
in the same academic term; giving or selling a term 
paper, report, project or other restricted written 
materials to another student. 

The term "plagiarism" includes, but is not limited to, 
an attempt of an individual to claim the work of 
another as the product of his or her own thoughts, 
regardless of whether that work has been published. 
Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to, quoting 
improperly or paraphrasing text or other written 
materials without proper citation on an exam, term 
paper, homework, or other written material 



98

Broward College i 



submitted to an instructor as one's own work. 
Plagiarism also includes handing in a paper to an 
instructor that was purchased from a term paper 
service or downloaded from the Internet and 
presenting another person's academic work as one's 
own. Individual academic departments may provide 
additional examples in writing of what does and 
does not constitute plagiarism, provided that such 
examples do not conflict with the intent of this 
policy. 

Breaches of Broward College's policy on academic 
honesty may result in academic penalties and/or 
disciplinary action. At the discretion of the 
instructor, academic penalties may include, but are 
not limited to, a failing grade for a particular 
assignment or a failing grade for the course. In 
addition, the instructor or another BC employee may 



refer a student to the Dean of Student Affairs for 
student disciplinary action in accordance with the 
BC Student Handbook. Such discipline may include 
suspension or expulsion from the College. 

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act 
(FERPA) 

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act 
(FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a 
Federal law that protects the privacy of student 
education records. The law applies to all schools that 
receive funds under an applicable program of the 
U.S. Department of Education. I or more 

information about FERPA, please review the 
Section on Student Rights and Responsibilities in

use facilities. The College and Broward County 
jointly operate these libraries. On North Campus, 
the joint BC/Broward County Library is located in 
building 62, and on the Judson A. Samuels South 
Campus, the joint BC/Broward County Library is 
located in building 81. Both of these facilities

Library Cards 

BC students are eligible to use all campus libraries. 
However, due to their particular partnerships, 
different cards are required on the campuses to 
check out materials. Students must have a BC 
identification card in order to check out materials 
from the University/College Library on the A. 
Hugh Adams Central Campus. Students at the 
North and Judson A. Samuels South Campuses 
and the Willis Holcombe Downtown Center and 
the Pine Centers must have a Broward County 
library card. Since each location is unique, 
materials that have been checked out must be 
returned to the campus from which the material

Peer Mentoring 

The Peer Mentoring Program was developed to 
provide an opportunity for new first-time in 
college students to connect with mentors who are 
knowledgeable of Broward College. Peer Mentors 
are experienced students who assist new students 
in their academic transition into college. They 
provide first-year students with information, 
support, and encouragement to be successful. 

Peer Mentors help students set goals, familiarize 
students with college resources, help students 
develop leadership skills, build self- confidence, 
make connections with faculty and staff, and 
provide them with a positive support system. The 
program requires Peer Mentors to meet with their 
mentees once per week and make additional 
contacts by telephone; e-mail, text message, and 
Facebook and use a mentoring log to document 
these contacts. 

To become a Peer Mentor, students are expected 
to demonstrate outstanding academic 
performance within their major field of study. 
Peer Mentors are trained in navigating the college 
systems, and in mentor roles and responsibilities. 
Peer Mentors also have the opportunity to 
develop their organizational and interpersonal 
skills by planning and participating in a variety of 
college activities developed by the Peer Mentoring 
Program. 

For further information, please contact the 
Student Success Office at each campus: 



The library staff encourages students and faculty 
to make suggestions for the improvement of 
service and appreciates recommendations for titles 
to be added to the collection. Qualified staff is 
available at each location to help patrons identify,

Student Rights and Responsibilities 



Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act 
(FERPA) 

Broward College Policy 6Hx2-5.03 

Broward College (the "College) will provide access 
to student records in accordance with the Family 
Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and 
Florida Statutes, Chapter 1002.22. All requests for 
student records must be made to the Custodian of 
Records/Vice President for Student Affairs and 
Enrollment Management. 

No record will be created or retained without a 
legitimate educational purpose for the information 
contained therein. 

The College will protect the confidentiality of a 
student's record and share information only with 
members of the College community who have a 
legitimate educational interest, to another 
educational institution when the student is seeking 
or intending to enroll at that institution, is part of an 
authorized Federal, State, or local audit of such 
records in compliance with applicable law, in 
connection with the determination of financial aid 
eligibility or enforcement, pursuant to a lawfully 
issued court order, a properly prepared subpoena, to 
a contracted vendor of the College performing an 
authorized service where there is a legitimate 
educational interest for the vendor to have access to 
such records, or the information is designated 
directory information. 

In response to a lawfully issued court order or a 
properly prepared subpoena, the College will seek to 
notify the student or the student's representative 
counsel when educational records are requested and 
before these records are released. 

Student records of a counseling or non-academic 
nature will not be made available to any outside 
person without written authorization from the 
eligible student or parent unless those records are 
specifically requested in conjunction with federal or 
state laws or court orders. In the case of properly 
prepared subpoenas, the release of the record will 
only be given when the student has been notified 
and payment of the fee established by the Board of 
Trustees has been paid. 



FERPA and the Student 

Students have the right to inspect their own official 
records and to authorize the College in writing to 
release information to outside sources. In 
accordance with the provisions of Florida Statutes, 
Chapter 1002.22, eligible students and parents have 
a right to challenge the content of their record. An 
eligible student or parent may exercise his/her rights 
under these provisions by submitting a request in 
writing to the appropriate Campus Registration 
Coordinator, the Office of the Associate Vice 
President for Student Affairs /College Registrar, or 
the Vice President for Student Affairs • and 
Enrollment Management. 

Student-generated documents are not considered 
working documents of the College or permanent 
student records, and it is the responsibility of the 
student to dispose of the document should they 
produce the document. A student-generated 
document is information generated by the student 
for his/her own use. When such a document is 
presented to the College, it shall be reviewed and 
then returned to the student or eligible parent. 

FERPA and the Parent of the Student 
According to Federal FERPA Regulations 34 CFR 
99, and Florida Statute 1002.22, the parents of a 
student who has reached the age of 18 years or is 
enrolled in a post-secondary program no longer have 
any rights under the provisions of this policy, unless 
the student gives written consent to release the 
information to the student's parents, or the parent 
provides evidence that the student is a dependant of 
the parent as defined in the Internal Revenue Code. 
The Parent of a student must establish his/her 
eligibility by providing dependency documents, 
including, but not limited to providing the most 
recent copy of a Federal tax return naming the 
student as a dependent. Such documentation must 
be provided in-person with the campus chief student 
affairs officer (dean of students). The record 
provided will be for viewing and validation purposes 
only; these records will not be retained. 

FERPA and Directory Information 
Schools may disclose, without consent, "directory" 
information; however, the College must annually 
notify students and parents of their rights under 
FERPA to "opt out" of the release of directory 



110

2011-2012 College Catalog 



Broward College 



information. The College notifies its students at the 
beginning of the fall and winter term in the student 
newspaper and in the annual printing of the Student 
Handbook. The College reserves the right to deny 
access to directory information when such action is 
deemed necessary to protect the rights of the 
student. 

In accordance with United States Code Title 10 
Section 983 and Florida Statutes Section 1004.09, 
the College shall grant military recruiters access to 
recruiting information including the names, 
addresses, telephone listing, dates and places of 
birth, academic major, degrees received, and most 
recent educational institution for students attending 
the College. The information provided to military 
recruiters is not subject to the definition that the 
College has established for "directory information" 
as defined in this Policy. Students who opt out of 
the release of CoDege directory information will also 
be considered to have opted out of the release of 
military recruitment information 

FERPA and Outsourcing 

The College may enter into agreements with outside 
vendors to provide services to the College that the 
College cannot or chooses not to provide through 
internal resources. In such situations, the College 
will ensure that the contractor will make available 
student records only to those individuals where 
there is a contractual relationship to provide such 
services. The College will ensure that the contracted 
vendor will not redisclose personally identifiable 
information without the Colleges consent as allowed 
by an authorized FERPA exception. 

FERPA and other Educational Institutions 
Student records will be released at the request of the 
student if the student is seeking or intending to 
attend another educational institution 

FERPA and Health and Safety 

In cases where there is a health and safety 
emergency, all College personnel are authorized to 
utilize any information as necessary to protect the 
health and safety of persons and property. Such 
release of information will not be considered a 
violation of College Policy. To the extent possible, 
the College will attempt to share information 
regarding the presence of students who may have a 
communicable disease (i.e. H1N1) without 
disclosing personally identifying data about the 
infected student. In instances where members of 
the College community have been exposed to a 



communicable health risk from a student, the 
College will, on a case-by-case basis, make a 
determination whether a disclosure of the infected 
student's name is necessary to protect the health or 
safety of other persons or whether a general notice 
is sufficient. 

Law enforcement unit officials or safety officials 
employed or contracted by the College are 
designated as "school officials" with a "legitimate 
educational interest." As school officials, the 
College may disclose without consent personally 
identifiable information from students' education 
records to law enforcement or safety officials in 
order to perform their professional duties and to 
assist with discipline and other matters related to 
official duties at the College. Law enforcement may 
not redisclose any personally identifiable 
information from the students' education record, 
except in compliance with FERPA. Specific law 
enforcement records maintained separately from 
education records are not subject to FERPA. 

VIOLATION OF POLICY 

Students and eligible parents who believe there has 
been a violation of their rights regarding student 
records are encouraged to contact the Custodian of 
Records/Vice President for Student Affairs and 
Enrollment Management. . If a resolution is not 
achieved, students and eligible parents may grieve 
the alleged misconduct in accordance with Florida 
Statutes, Chapter 1002.22 or they may contact the 
United States Department of Education's Family 
Policy Compliance Office. 

Students who improperly obtain student records 
may be subject to discipline in accordance with the 
Student Code of Conduct.

Possession of firearms, dangerous 
chemicals and/or other weapons not 
deemed necessary for College purposes 
is forbidden at any College location or 
at any College-sponsored activity, 
including in the parking area for the 
college or the activity. This specificallv 
revokes an individual's right to carry a 
licensed firearm at any College location 
or at any College-sponsored activity; 
additionally, this specifically revokes an 
individual's right to store a firearm in a 
vehicle at any College location or at any

their duties are exempt from this policy. 
Authorized personnel with a specific 
educational purpose are exempt, but

dangerous materials on campus, 
Broward College officials have the right 
to make reasonable inquiries to confirm 
that the firearm or other dangerous 
material is being legally carried or stored 
as permitted by Florida Statute and BC 
Policy. 

Students enrolled in various programs 
at the College may also be subject to 
standards of conduct unique to these 
programs, including, but not limited to 
health sciences programs, Institute for 
Public Safety, Aviation, etc. Violations 
of the standards of behavior for these 
programs shall be considered a breach 
of this Code of Conduct. Students

more about the standards of 
professional conduct that are applicable 
to them. 

Bias-Motivated Conduct (Commonly referred to as 
"Hate Crimes"): The College believes that members 
of the College community have the right to lawfully 
affiliate free from harassment with social groups of 
their choice without fear of intimidation based on 
this membership. Therefore, the College will impose 
significandy increased sanctions against perpetrators 
who commit one or more of the offenses in this 
Policy, if the College determines that the 
perpetrators actions were motivated by the actual or 
perceived affiliation of the victim with a particular 
social group. Additionally, the College will support 
the criminal prosecution of students who engage in 
bias -motivated violations of this Code in accordance 
with Florida Statutes 775.085, Federal Statutes 18 
U.S.C. § 245 & 249, and other applicable laws. 

VIOLATION OF POLICY 

The College retains the right to discipline students 
and student organizations up to dismissal from the 
College, for violation of this policy. 

Students who are also employees of the College, 
who are found to have violated the Student Code of 
Conduct, may also be subject to disciplinary action 
as employees up to and including termination of 
their employment from the College. Any such 
instances will be investigated by the Vice President 
of Human Resources or his/her designee. 
Additionally, employees of the College who are also 
students, and who are subject to disciplinary action 
in their role as employees, may also be subject to 
disciplinary action through the Student Code of 
Conduct. 

Breaches of the College's policies pertaining to 
academic dishonesty may result in academic 
penalties imposed by the instructor in accordance 
with BC Policy 6Hx2-4.19. Academic penalties may 
include, but are not limited to, a failing grade for a 
particular assignment or a failing grade for the 
course. Additionally, the student may be referred to 
the Dean of Students of the campus/center for 
violations of the Student Code of Conduct for 
disciplinary action. 

The College maintains partnerships with external 
institutions including but not limited to educational 
institutions, libraries, and health services providers. 
A student who violates the rules of a College partner 



is also subject to BC Policy, including the College 
Student Code of Conduct. Additionally, a student 
who violates the College Student Code of Conduct 
may also be found to have violated the rules of a 
College partner. 

College sponsored programs or sanctioned events 
may have their own rules and disciplinary 
procedures that would be applicable in addition to 
the Student Code of Conduct, such as the Institute 
of Public Safety, Aviation Institute, etc. 



DEFINITIONS 

Abusive Conduct - physical abuse, verbal abuse, 
threats, intimidation, harassment, coercion and/or 
other conduct which threatens or endangers the

membership in a certain social group, usually 
defined by race, color, ancestry, ethnicity, religion, 
sexual orientation, national origin, homeless status,

money or any item or service to a College employee 
for the purpose of attempting to obtain assistance,

also includes the giving of work or information to 
another student to be copied and/or used as his or 
her own. Including, but not limited to, giving a 
student answers to exam questions either when the 
exam is being given or after having taken an exam;

on race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age,

hostile or offensive environment. 

Plagiarism - includes but is not limited to, an attempt 
by a student to claim the work of another as the 
product of his or her own thoughts, regardless of 
whether that work has been published; quoting 
improperly or paraphrasing text or other written 
materials without proper citation on an exam, term 
paper, homework, or other written material 
submitted to an instructor as one's own work; and 
handing in a paper to an instructor that was 
purchased from a term paper service or downloaded 
from the Internet and presenting another person's 
academic work as one's own. Individual academic 
departments may provide additional examples in 



writing of what does and does not constitute 
plagiarism, provided that such examples do not 
conflict with this policy. 

Retaliatory action - any material adverse action taken 
against the person who makes or supports a 
complaint of discrimination, or creating a hostile or 
threatening environment against such persons. 

Sexual Harassment any unwelcome sexual 

advances, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal 
or physical conduct of a sexual nature which (1) 
makes submissions to or rejection of such conduct 
either an explicit or implicit basis for Admissions

Dismissal of Disruptive Students 



Broward College Policy 6Hx2-5.19 



Students who cannot conform to the standards of 
appropriate behavior as set forth in Broward College 
Policy 6Hx2-5.19, Student Code of Conduct, shall 
not be permitted to interfere with other students' 



Broward College 



201 1-2012 College Catalog 



w w w.brQN v ard.edu 



access to a college education. Broward College 
students are subject to federal and state law, county 
and municipal ordinances, and all policies and 
procedures of the Board of Trustees. Violation of 
these policies may result in appropriate action by 
College authorities. The campus Deans of Student 
Affairs are authorized to recommend to the Vice 
President for Student Affairs the suspension or 
expulsion of students based on disruptive behavior. 
For students who exhibit disruptive behavior serious 
enough to merit disciplinary action, the College may 
refer the students for appropriate 

psychological/psychiatric evaluation. 



HIV/AIDS 

Broward College Policy 6Hx2-5.16 

Broward College recognizes the serious adverse 
societal and educational impact associated with the 
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), and 
Acquired Immune Deficiency syndrome (AIDS). 

College students may not violate the Student Code 
of Conduct as it relates to discrimination against 
students, faculty, staff, or guests of the College 
based on their perception of HIV/AIDS infection. 

Students enrolled in various programs at the College, 
including, but not limited to health sciences, 
Institute for Public Safety, Aviation, etc, may be 
required per the Program Guidelines for the 
particular program, to successfully complete an 
HIV/ AIDS educational class or program as a 
prerequisite for admission to the program. 

Students enrolled in various programs at the College, 
including, but not limited to, health sciences, 
Institute for Public 

Safety, Aviation, etc. may be required as part of the 
standards of conduct established by these programs 
to interact with members of the community who are 
infected with HIV/ AIDS. Students who are not 
able to meet this obligation should reconsider their 
program choice as dismissal or disciplinary action 



could be taken as result of any conduct violation or 
refusal to service. 

In accordance with the Student Code of Conduct, 
students who discriminate against other students, 
faculty, staff, or members of the community whom 
they believe have tested positive for HIV/ AIDS are 
subject to discipline up to and including expulsion 
from the College. Additionally, it should be noted 
that discrimination against persons with HIV/AIDs 
may constitute bias-motivated conduct, which may 
subject the violator to stronger sanctions. 



Complaint Process for Students for Non- 
Instructional Issues 

Broward College Policy 6Hx2-5.23 

A prospective or enrolled student may file a 
complaint, which is a written claim raised by a 
student, a group of students, or the student 
government, alleging improper, unfair, arbitrary, or 
discriminator}' action by an employee involving the 
application of a specific provision of a college 
rule/regulation or a board policy or procedure. 

A prospective or enrolled student has the right to 
seek a remedy for a dispute or a disagreement 
through a designated complaint procedure. Students 
should use available informal means to have a 
decision reconsidered before filing a complaint. No 
retaliation of any kind shall be taken against a 
student for participation in a complaint. 

This procedure is to be used when a student has a 
concern about her/his education at the college. The 
objective of the procedure is to resolve problems as 
quickly and efficiently as possible at the level closest 
to the student so the student's educational progress 
can continue. Nothing within this process precludes 
a student from seeking legal counsel at any step, at 
which time, the internal complaint process stops.

General Education at Broward College 



Philosophy of General Education 

General Education at Broward College is a core of 
common learning experiences that enables students 
to acquire and apply a broad foundation of 
integrated knowledge, skills, and behaviors. The 
core curriculum assures breadth that cannot be 
found in any specific discipline. In particular, 
literacy and communication skills, in all their forms, 
are reinforced throughout the students' program of 
study. Further, the program provides opportunities 
for students to apply their acquired knowledge and 
skills in solving increasingly complex problems. This 
prepares students to be independent, lifelong 
learners, assuming roles of responsibility in the 
global community 

Expected Educational Results 

The College believes that a well-educated person is 
one who possesses the intellectual capabilities, skills 
and behaviors to: 

• Read with critical comprehension 

• Write clearly and coherently 

• Demonstrate literacy as appropriate within a 
given discipline 

• Apply problem solving skills or methods to 
make informed decisions in a variety of 
contexts** 

• Differentiate between ethical and unethical 
behavior 

• Demonstrate an understanding of the physical, 
biological, and social environments and how 
individual behaviors impact this complex 
system. 

• Demonstrate an understanding of and 
appreciation for human diversities and 
commonalities 

• Speak and listen effectively 



Selection of General Education Courses 

The College offers four different types of degrees, 
the Associate in Arts (AA), numerous Associate in 
Science (AS), the Associate in Applied Science 
(AAS) and several baccalaureate degrees (BAS, 
BSED, and BSN). Different degrees have different 
General Education requirements based upon: 

o Florida Statutes (1001.02, 1007.23, 1007.25), 
o State Board of Education Rules (6A-1 4.030 and 

6A- 10.024), 
o Southern Association of Colleges and Schools - 

Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) Core 

Requirement 2.7.3 & Comprehensive Standard 

3.5.1, and 
o Broward College's Policy (6Hx2-4.22). 

Broward College requires a total of 36 credits of 
General Education coursework in communication, 
mathematics, social/behavioral sciences, 

humanities, natural sciences and wellness for the 
AA and baccalaureate degree programs. For the AS 
and AAS degrees, Broward College requires 15 
credits within the subject areas of communication, 
humanities, social/behavioral sciences and 
mathematics/natural sciences These requirements 
are listed in following sections. 

General Education Block Transfer 
Guarantee for AA Degree Students 

Per State Board of Education Rule 6 A- 10.024, once 
a student has been certified by an institution on the 
official transcript as having completed satisfactorily 
its prescribed general education core curriculum, 
regardless of w T hether the associate degree is 
conferred, no other Florida public postsecondarv 
institution to which he or she may transfer shall 
require any further such general education courses.

Academic Programs and Graduation Requirements 



Associate in Arts (AA) Degree 

Broward College offers the Associate in Arts degree 
with a wide variety of course options to enable 
students to seamlessly transfer to the state 
university system. More information regarding AA 
options may be obtained from the web site online at 
www.broward.edu/programs or from any Academic 
Advisor. 

AA Mission Statement 

The Associate in Arts degree provides courses of 
study equivalent to those offered to freshman and 
sophomore students in the lower division of 
Florida's state universities. Students are encouraged 
to meet with an academic advisor to construct their 
educational plans to include university prerequisite 
requirements for their major area of study. Students 
should also consult with an advisor at the university 
of their choice prior to making course selections to 
avoid taking excess credits and to determine 
additional university requirements. If students 
follow the State's Common Prerequisite manual 
when selecting their coursework, the AA degree they 
receive from BC should meet the lower division 
requirements of the designated State university and 
allow them to be admitted at the junior-level. The 
AA degree includes 36 semester hours of General 
Education courses in addition to courses 
appropriate for the upper-division major selected by 
the student. The General Education requirements 
are within the subject areas of communications, 
mathematics, social sciences, humanities, and natural 
sciences. Apart from its transfer function, the 
degree provides students with the opportunity to 
gain competencies necessary to be participating and 
productive members of a democratic society. 

Students are encouraged to contact the specific 
institution they wish to transfer regarding that 
institution's unique requirements. Specific 
information concerning transfer to the following 
Florida state universities is available in any campus 
Counseling and Advisement Office.

NURSING 

Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program Major Code N100 



Mission Statement 

Consistent with the mission of the College and building on 
the mission of the Associate Degree nursing program, the 
faculty of Broward College's RN-BSN Nursing program are 
committed to achieving student success by preparing 
baccalaureate nurse generalist for the role of provider of 
direct and indirect care, designer, manager and coordinator of 
that care, and a member of the nursing profession. The RN- 
BSN program has Program Candidacy status with the 
National League of Nursing Accrediting Commission 
(NLNAC) 

The mission of the RN-BSN nursing program is to prepare a 
professional and competent nurse who practices in a dynamic 
health care environment across communities, populations, 
and life-spans; providing leadership to promote and improve 
global health; is committed to the advancement of nursing 
knowledge and practice, celebrates diversity, and aspires to 
lifelong learning and achievement. 

Program Philosophy 

The faculty believes that nursing is a discipline in which the 
holistic needs of the person are met in a variety of settings. 
The body of knowledge that serves as the rationale for 
nursing practice and is held to be of most value in the 
discipline of nursing includes: (1) empirics, the science of 
nursing; (2) esthetics, the art of nursing; (3) knowing, the 
component of personal knowledge in nursing; and (4) ethics, 
the component of moral knowledge in nursing. (Carper, 
1978). The essence of nursing is situated in practice-oriented, 
person-centered caring, guided by ethical decision-making 
and shaped by internal and external environments, diverse 
family and community structures, and engagement with the 
larger community, both locally and globally, increasing global 
interdependence, and social, political, professional, and 
economic systems.

NURSING 

Nursing (R.N.) Associate in Science Degree Major Code 2127 
LPN-RN Transition Major Code 21271 



Program Description 

The Associate in Science Degree Nursing Program is 
designed to prepare the individual student for a career as 
a professional nurse. The program's mission is to prepare 
competent, compassionate, and culturally sensitive entry-level 
nursing graduates whose professional practice encompasses 
legal and ethical decision-making in the promotion of health 
in the community. The practice of professional nursing 
requires the performance of those acts, which require 
substantial specialized knowledge, critical judgment, critical 
thinking, and nursing skill, based upon applied scientific 
principles. The graduate nurse is prepared to practice holistic 
nursing incorporating biophysical, psychosocial, spiritual, 
cultural, and wellness concepts. 

The Nursing Program is approved by the Florida Board of 
Nursing, accredited by the National League for Nursing 
Accrediting Commission Inc. (NLNAC), and holds 
membership in both the Associate Degree Council of the 
National League for Nursing and the National Organization 
for Associate Degree Nursing (N-OADN). The Florida 
Board of Nursing mailing address is 4052 Bald Cypress Way, 
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3257. www.doh.state.fl.us . 
NLNAC is located at 3343 Peachtree Road, NE, Suite 500, 
Atlanta, Georgia, 30326. www.nlnac.org . 

The student who has met all educational and institutional 
requirements for an Associate in Science Degree in Nursing 
from Broward College is eligible to have his/her name 
submitted to the Florida Board of Nursing to be considered 
as a candidate for the National Council Licensure 
Examination for the Registered Nurse (NCLEX-RN). The 
Florida Board of Nursing is the state agency authorized to 
determine if the applicant qualifies to take the National 
Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) for licensure 
as a Registered Nurse in Florida. For licensure requirements, 
refer to sections 464.008 and 464.009, Florida Statutes (F. S.), 
Rules 64B9-3.002 and 3.008, Florida Administrative Code 
(F.A.C.) 

The Florida Board of Nursing, in accordance with the Rules 
and Regulations of the Nurse Practice Act, will determine if a 
nursing program graduate is eligible for licensure when there 
is an arrest/conviction record. All individuals with a 
criminal or discipline history should read Chapter 464, 
Florida Statutes (F.S.) and Chapter 64B9, Florida 
Administrative Code (F.A.C.) as they pertain to the 
practice of nursing. The Board of Nursing encourages 
all individuals with a criminal or discipline history to 
fully understand these requirements. For more 
information refer to the Florida Board of Nursing web 
site www.doh.state.fl.us/mqa/nursing or call 850-488-

General Program Information 

The Nursing Program offers two full time day program 
options for the Associate in Science Degree in Nursing: The 
Generic Option and the LPN-RN Transition Option. Both 
program options are offered in the traditional classroom 
setting and the online/internet setting. The Generic Option is 
for those student applicants who have no previous nursing 



education. The LPN-RN Transition Option is for those 
students who already hold a current Florida Practical Nursing 
License without restrictions. The LPN-RN Transition 
program recognizes the Florida Licensed Practical Nurses' 
knowledge and skill level, and provides them the opportunity 
to receive experiential learning credits for Nursing Process 
I/II (Fundamentals of Nursing) and the specialty lab nursing 
courses. 

The Generic Option and LPN-RN Transition Option are 
both offered in the traditional classroom setting or via the 
Internet (Online Option). The Online Option offers the 
nursing program theory as a Flexible Learning course 
designed for students who prefer a blend of online and on 
campus learning. The online program objectives and program 
completion requirements are identical to the traditional 
nursing program. 

Online nursing courses are equivalent to courses taken in the 
standard contact hour format. The cost of tuition is the same 
as for those courses offered in the traditional classroom 
setting. However, students enrolled in online nursing courses 
may be assessed special fees. 

Online nursing is a Hybrid method of delivery for courses 
and requires on campus meetings for orientations, labs, 
instruction, and proctored exams. Required meeting dates are 
listed in the course schedule and in course syllabi. Students 
enrolled in the online nursing courses must be able to attend 
clinical experiences in Broward County and come to campus 
for exams and lab activities. 

The nursing program combines studies in general education 
and nursing education at the college with selected clinical 
experiences in hospitals and other community facilities. 
Nursing courses require students to spend a combined 20 to 
36 hours per week in the classroom and clinical settings. The 
program consists of 72 credits. The ratio of clock hours to 
credit hours in the clinical courses is 3.5 to 1. There are 56 
hours of clinical practicum for each credit and 16 hours of 
theory for each credit. Generic students attend 1008 hours of 
clinical. LPN-RN Transition students attend 728 hours of 
clinical. Clinical hours are a combination of nursing 
experiences in acute care and extended care facilities and 
nursing campus lab setting. All clinical hours are mandatory

Criminal Background and Drug Screenings 

Clinical affiliating agency sites require students to be 
fingerprinted, pass drug screening and background checks, 
and clear the HHS/OIG list of excluded individuals and the 
GSA list of parties excluded from federal programs.

are essendal for clinical placement and progression. Students 
who fail to submit to a background check or students whose 
background checks indicate a conviction as specified in 
Florida Statutes Tide XXXI, Chapter 435.04; Level 2 
Screening Standards may not be eligible for admission and/or

Broward College Nursing Program acknowledges the 
problem of substance abuse in our society and perceives this 
problem as a serious threat to employees, students, and 
patients. It is the intent of the College to establish and 
maintain a drug-free educational setting and work place. The 
College policies related to zero tolerance for substance abuse 
can be found in the current Broward College Student 
Handbook. 

Incoming students for the Nursing Program shall be drug 
screened through arrangements made by the school and the 
screening agency. Students are responsible for the cost of all 
screenings. A student needs to be aware that they may be 
denied participation and placement at a clinical agency based 
on the background or drug screening findings and the clinical 
agency's pre-employment screening policy. Withdrawal from 
the program will be necessary if a student cannot be placed in 
a clinical agency to meet program practicum requirements. 

A negative drug screen will be required to be eligible to enroll 
in any nursing course. Drug screening and background checks 
will be required-at the time of admission or reinstatement into 
the Nursing Program. Annual updates for background and 
drug screens are required while enrolled in the nursing 
program. Students may be drug tested at any time while 
enrolled in the program. The student will be responsible for 
the cost of the required screenings. Evidence of 
chemical/substance abuse will result in immediate 
administrative dismissal from the program and outcome per 
the College policies related to zero tolerance for substance 
abuse. College Policy related to substance abuse can be found 
in the current Broward College Student Handbook. If a 
nursing student is dismissed from the nursing program for 
substance abuse, this action may be reported, if appropriate, 
to the Intervention Project for Nurses of the Florida Board 
of Nursing and/or another appropriate assisting agency. 
Nursing students' physicals are to note if they are taking 
prescription drugs that have the potential to affect 
performance in the clinical area. Medical clearance would be 
requested from the prescribing physician.

FLORIDA STATEWIDE COURSE NUMBERING SYSTEM 



Courses in this catalog are identified by prefixes and 
numbers that were assigned by Florida's Statewide 
Course Numbering System (SCNS). This numbering 
system is used by all public postsecondary institutions 
in Florida and 28 participating non-public institutions. 
The major purpose of this system is to facilitate the 
transfer of courses between participating institutions. 
Students and administrators can use the online- 
Statewide Course Numbering System to obtain course 
descriptions and specific information about course 
transfer between participating Florida institutions. This 
information is at the SCNS website at 
http://scns.fldoe.org. 

Each participating institution controls the title, credit, 
and content of its own courses and recommends the 



first digit of the course number to indicate the level at 
which students normally take the course. Course- 
prefixes and the last three digits of the course numbers 
are assigned by members of faculty discipline- 
committees appointed for that purpose by the Florida 
Department of Education in Tallahassee. Individuals 
nominated to serve on these committees are 'selected to 
maintain a representative balance as to type of 
institution and discipline field or specialization. 

The course prefix and each digit in the course number 
have a meaning in the Statewide Course Numbering 
System (SCNS). The list of course prefixes and 
numbers, along with their generic tides, is referred to as 
the "SCNS taxonomy." Descriptions of the content of 
courses are referred to as "statewide course profiles."

General Rule for Course Equivalencies 

Equivalent courses at different institutions are 
identified by the same prefixes and same last three 
digits of the course number and are guaranteed to be 
transferable between participating institutions that offer 
the course, with a few exceptions as listed below in 
Exception to the General Rule for Equivalency. 

For example, a freshman composition skills course is 
offered by 56 different postsecondary institutions. 
Each institution uses "ENC_101" to identify its 
freshman composition skills course. The level code is 
the first digit and represents the year in which students 
normally take the course at a specific institution. In the 
SCNS taxonomy, "ENC" means "English 
Composition," the century digit "1" represents 
"Freshman Composition," the decade digit "0" 
represents "Freshman Composition Skills," and the 
unit digit "1" represents "Freshman Composition Skills 
I." 

In the sciences and certain other areas, a "C" or "L" 
after the course number is known as a lab indicator. 
The "C" represents a combined lecture and laboratory 
course that meets in the same place at the same time. 
The "L" represents a laboratory course or the 



laboratory part of a course, having the same prefix and 
course number without a lab indicator, which meets at 
a different time or place. 

Transfer of any successfully completed course from 
one participating institution to another is guaranteed in 
cases where the course to be transferred is equivalent 
to one offered by the receiving institution. 
Equivalencies are established by the same prefix and 
last three digits and comparable faculty credentials at 
both institutions. For example, ENC 1101 is offered 
at a community college. The same course is offered at 
a state university as ENC 2101. A student who has 
successfully completed ENC 1101 at the community 
college is guaranteed to receive transfer credit for ENC 
2101 at the state university if the student transfers. The 
student cannot be required to take ENC 2101 again 
since ENC 1101 is equivalent to ENC 2101. Transfer 
credit must be awarded for successfully completed 
equivalent courses and used by the receiving institution 
to determine satisfaction of requirements by transfer 
students on the same basis as credit awarded to the 
native students. It is the prerogative of the receiving 
institution, however, to offer transfer creeiit for courses 
successfully completed that have not been designated 
as equivalent. NOTE: Credit generated at institutions 



Broward College 



201 1-2012 College Catalog 



WAVw.broward.edu 






on the quarter-term system may not transfer the 
equivalent number of credits to institutions on 
semester-term systems. For example, 4.0 quarter hours 
often transfers as 2.67 semester hours. 

The Course Prefix 

The course prefix is a three-letter designator for a 
major division of an academic discipline, subject matter 
area, or sub-category of knowledge. The prefix is not 
intended to identify the department in which a course 
is offered. Rather, the content of a course determines 
the assigned prefix to identify the course. 

Authority for Acceptance of Equivalent Courses 

Section 1007.24(7), Florida Statutes, states: 

Any student who transfers among 
postsecondary institutions that are fully 
accredited by a regional or national 
accrediting agency recognized by the United 
States Department of Education and that 
participate in the statewide course numbering 
system shall be awarded credit by the 
receiving institution for courses satisfactorily 
completed by the student at the previous 
institutions. Credit shall be awarded if the 
courses are judged by the appropriate 
statewide course numbering system faculty 
committees representing school districts, 
public postsecondary educational institutions, 
and participating nonpublic postsecondary 
educational institutions to be academically 
equivalent to courses offered at the receiving 
institution, including equivalency of faculty 
credentials, regardless of the public or 
nonpublic control of the previous institution. 
The Department of Education shall ensure 
that credits to be accepted by a receiving 
institution are generated in courses for which 
the faculty possess credentials that are 
comparable to those required by the 
accrediting association of the receiving 
institution. The award of credit may be 
limited to courses that are entered in the 
statewide course numbering system. Credits 
awarded pursuant to this subsection shall 
satisfy institutional requirements on the same 
basis as credits awarded to native students. 

Exceptions to the General Rule for Equivalency 

Since the initial implementation of the SCNS, specific 
disciplines or types of courses have been excepted from 
the guarantee of transfer for equivalent courses. These 
include varying topics courses that must be evaluated 
individually, or applied courses in which the student 



must be evaluated for mastery of skill and technique. 
The following courses are exceptions to the general 
rule for course equivalencies and may not transfer. 
Transferability is at the discretion of the receiving 
institution.

Courses not 
institution. 

For courses at non-regionally accredited 
institutions, courses offered prior to the 
established transfer date of the course in 
question. 

Courses in the _900-999 series are not 
automatically transferable, and must be 
evaluated individually. These include such 
courses as Special Topics, Internships, 
Apprenticeships, Practica, Study Abroad, 
Thesis and Dissertations. 
D. College preparatory and vocational preparatory 
courses. 

Graduate courses. 

Internships, apprenticeships, practica, clinical 
experiences and study abroad courses with 
numbers other than those ranging from 900- 
999. 

Applied courses in the performing arts (Art, 
Dance, Interior Design, Music, and Theatre) 
and skills courses in Criminal Justice (academy 
certificate courses) are not guaranteed as 
transferable. These courses need evidence of 
achievement (i.e., portfolio, audition, interview, 
etc.). 

Courses at Non-regionally Accredited Institutions 

The Statewide Course Numbering System makes 
available on its home page (http://scns.fldoe.org) a 
report entitled "Courses at Nonregionally Accredited 
Institutions" that contains a comprehensive listing of 
all nonpublic institution courses in the SCNS inventory, 
as well as each course's transfer level and transfer 
effective date. This report is updated monthly. 

Questions about the Statewide Course Numbering 
System and appeals regarding course credit transfer 
decisions should be directed to The District Director 
for Academic Affairs, at (954) 201-7519 or the Florida 
Department of Education, Office of Articulation, 1401 
Turlington Building, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-0400. 
Special reports and technical information may be 
requested by calling the Statewide Course Numbering 
System office at (850) 245-0427 or via the internet at
